  • "Human Radio Pastor Expires In Los Angeles", Sacramento Bee (Sacramento, CA): 2, 24 Dec. 1937, https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/617223589, "Rev. George Francis [...] who regarded himself as a sort of human radio capable of receiving and reproducing 'thought waves,' died at his home today. In a book, Man, the Human Radio and Key to Knowledge, he contended man is like a radio set except that his 12,000,000,000 brain cells are not yet attuned to the thought waves of others."
