It became so popular because during the 1920s and so on, and during the Great Depression and World War 1 and such, it was usefull for a new standard in communication with your friends or communication in war but it was also sparked in regular citizens in the U.s and manyother places for leisure. Cause in that time, the radio didnt only broadcast news and music, but dramas, sitcoms, and music programs.
