(Op 5 oktober 1925 beginnen in Nashville de uitzendingen van het radiostation WSM. Eén van de eerste programma’s is WSM Barn Dance. Dit wordt op zaterdagavond uitgezonden. Twee jaar later wordt de titel veranderd in Grand Ole Opry. In de loop der jaren treden alle bekende country & western-artiesten in dit programma op. Het is nog steeds één van de populairste programma’s op de Amerikaanse radio.)

(Op 1 november 1925 wordt in hotel Parkzicht in Amsterdam de Vereeniging Arbeiders Radio Amateurs opgericht. Levenus J. van Looi is de eerste voorzitter. De V.A.R.A. wordt daarmee de omroep van de zich emanciperende arbeidersbeweging. De eerste radiouitzending is op 7 november 1925, met klassieke muziek en declamatie van verzen van Adama van Scheltema, Henriëtte Roland Holst, Margot Vos en Van Collem.)

(Op 10 november 1925 is de Nacht van Kersten. Op die avond weet Gerrit Hendrik Kersten, een overtuigd anti-rooms-Katholiek, een amendement in de Tweede Kamer aangenomen te krijgen dat het gezantschap bij de Heilige Stoel (het Vaticaan) afschaft. Dit leidt tot de val van het kabinet-Colijn I en is daarmee waarschijnlijk de meest invloedrijke actie van de kleine SGP in de Nederlandse politieke geschiedenis.)
