On December 12th 1901, the first radio transmission was sent across the Atlantic Ocean. In Cornwall, England, Guglielmo Marconi sent the letter S in Morse Code. The transmission was received in Newfoundland, over 2,000 miles away.

Why the letter S? To promote Saturday Scenes, of course!

On December 12th 2008, these photographs were taken:

Tell our participants how much you love their photographs:

It’s easy to take part! Just take a photograph on a Saturday and send the link to @Satscenes. Special credit for photos taken in Cornwall or Newfoundland.

Edit #1: It’s easy for me to mess up, too! Our Saturday early bird was @rauchy with his great sequence of A Saturday Morning Continental Breakfast. Ooops!

Edit #2: Actually, Saturday was December 13th. So all of my intro is a bit silly. BUT it turns out that one of our contributors is also the mother of the Guinness World Record creator and holder as Youngest Radio Host (photo coming soon) so I’m leaving it and changing the calendar instead. It seemed simpler.

And here he is!

Dakota Morton (born in Canada June 12, 1988) is known as the World’s Youngest Radio Host. He created the record and set it on January 16, 1999 at the age of 10 years, 218 days. The record was awarded while Dakota was hosting his radio show at CJAV radio

Edit #3: I’ve fixed the broken link. I think I might just go back to bed!
