First radio ministry in the country … in Maine

DownEast.com’s trivia stumped me again. I would have figured Portland as the location. Or Bangor or Augusta or any other fairly large Maine city. But I would not have guessed how early it started.

 What is the oldest electronic church in the country?

Answer:

The First Radio Parish Church, broadcast daily by WCSH-TV in Portland, was first heard over the airwaves on WCSH-AM radio in 1926.
