On This day – 24 May

Posted on: Wed 24 May 2017

This day in history marked an important day for technology. In 1944 the first ever message was sent by telegraph and in 1930 Amy Johnson became the first female pilot to fly from England to Australia. This day in history is also the birthday of actor and comedian John C Reilly in 1965 and musician Bob Dylan in 1941.

Breakfast Producer Tim Sutherland gave us the lowdown this morning.
