Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla / WGRF

Nikola Tesla was born on this date in 1856. He and Guglielmo Marconi are often both credited with discovering radio but in 1943 the United States Supreme Court reinstated one of his patents effectively crediting Tesla as the actual inventor.

Here's son #2 on Tesla's lap in Niagara Falls, New York wearing a vintage 97 Rock t-shirt.

WGRF (W George Rand FM, former station owner and founder of Remington Rand) has been a Rock station in Buffalo, New York since 1975. They are also the flagship station for the Buffalo Bills Radio Network.
