Unbelievable Historic General Conference Mix-up

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has always been engaged in spreading the message of the gospel. In the 1920s, radio was emerging as a technology that had the potential to reach millions. May 6, 1922 marked the first broadcast of the Church. On that date, Heber J. Grant, seventh president of the Church, took to the airwaves. Then, in 1923, one session of general conference was broadcast on the radio. The following year the entire conference was broadcast. The general conferences of today are still broadcast by radio, as well as TV, internet and more in many languages.
