The parents [of Joseph M. Canfield] were extremely conservative and the family did not purchase a radio until 1932, which was constantly tuned to Christian broadcasting.
My two cents
Wow, this sounds a bit like me. I wonder if the same applied in their household for television as well. Either way, I don’t want television in my house, and with the radio, I’m not much different; 95 per cent of the time it’s used as an alarm clock, and the rest is to occasionally listen to radio evangelists. I don’t like my headspace being invaded by humanistic media.
