RCA’s competitive advantage discouraged many neophytes, in fact, from pursuing similar dreams in territory already occupied by RCA, where it either had subjugated its rivals or seemed to be well on its way to doing so. All of this, plus RCA’s exploits into international radio circuitry, maritime communications, manufacturing subsidiaries, technical education, laboratories and research organizations underscored an indisputable perception of NBC’s viability as leader in radio broadcasting— for a long while at least.

The infamous patents possessed by RCA, which had earlier resided in impasse territory, were instantly thrust into a tangle of relationships with other domains—automobiles, film, phonographs, theater, vaudeville. Deals and mergers followed in rapid succession. Broadcasting, led by NBC, was having a cumulative impact on other spheres, paving the way for new alignments. The moves that filled the years 1927–1929 were as impressive as the moves made by Owen D. Young in 1919–1921. They also stirred visions of wealth and grandeur, so much so that rumor mounted on rumor, energizing an already quickening stock market ascent.

Spaced along a ticker-tape route lined with cheering crowds of spectators, interlocutors from an NBC inventory of professionals— 30 AMERICAN RADIO NETWORKS with names that were becoming household words in American domiciles—were passing the air spotlight to one another much like a flaming torch as listeners to 50 stations followed the dramatic action. It was stuff like that which fed a media frenzy and sold more and more radios.
