The advent of broadcasting and recording technology in the early 20th century meant that historic events could be documented, preserved, and shared forevermore as no previous 100 years in history. Now, on Rhinos three-CD Great Moments Of The 20th Century box set, nearly 200 audio clips of the centurys most important events come alive again, from Marconis first transatlantic radio transmission in December 1901 to the New Years Eve celebration in Times Square on December 31, 1999. Each disc combines newsworthy political and economic events with insightful pop-culture developments to provide an entertaining and educational view of the last 100 years. The accompanying 102-page booklet includes informative essays for each decade, a time line, and a detailed track-by-track commentary.
