In the 1910s as a boy, Marshall H. Ensor W9BSP, developed a serious interest in radio. He was 16 when he joined that growing bunch everywhere who built simple equipment to listen AND talk using a wireless radio. By 1922 he had acquired a Federal Radio operator’s license. By the late 1920s, Marshall was teaching radio “by radio” in his own home. Come and hear how an Olathe dairy farmer made good!

Marshall Ensor’s home in Olathe is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Register of Historic Kansas Places.
