BROOKLYN - Eugenia Farrar, the first person to ever sing over wireless radio, was given a final farewell at Brooklyn?s historic Greenwood Cemetery today.
Farrar's cremated remains are interred in an elegant glass-plated niche at Greenwood's Tranquility Garden more than a century after her historic broadcast in 1907 and almost 45 years after her death in 1966.
At the ceremony, singers recreated her famed performance of ?I Love You Truly.?
Farrar performed the song in a midtown laboratory over a newly invented wireless radio. The transmission was successfully received by crew members of a Navy vessel docked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
