“In 1938 more than a hundred Cincinnati concerns and individuals were engaged in the repair and maintenance of home and automobile radio receiving sets. That year combined employment in both the manufacturing and repairing phases of the radio industry amounted to about 1,500. The annual payroll was estimated at more than two million dollars.”
