This is to inspire and empower each of us to our potential.
From his autobiography -
“I planned with a friend in San Jose, forty miles from Oakland, to help me in an experiment. I coached him that while I was on a radio station, forty miles away, I would give a signal over the radio, a cricket sound, and then he was to turn on a gas flame, within a tube to its highest point of two feet high. I would affect the flame in its height and then extinguish it. I did not tell anyone of my experiment at KGO radio. My friend called me immediately after the radio program and informed me that every experiment was a success. At a distance of forty miles, with my bird voice, I had extinguished through the radio, a two-foot gas flame, and caused the tall, yellow flame to become a blue roaring Bunsen. When I told them at KGO station what I had done, they were astounded and asked if I would be willing to repeat the experiments before the professors of physics at the University of California in Berkeley.
On the evening of September 6th, Prof. A. T. Jones, University of California, introduced me before the microphone at KGO in Oakland. He gave a short explanation of how the “sensitive flame” is affected by only the very highest vibrations and what I intended to do had never been done before. In LeConte Hall in Berkeley ten miles away, a group of scientists and physicists, headed by Dr. Elmer Hall, were at the receiving end with the “sensitive flame” apparatus before them. The line was kept clear over the telephone so those in the hall in Berkeley could give signals to me in Oakland, and report the results at once. I was to cause the flame to dance (become agitated) and to again make the two foot yellow flame become the Bunsen.
Every experiment and the exact time the scientists wanted them done, were successfully completed. Over the radio, ten miles away, I put out the flame several times, and made the Bunsen several times. Representatives of AP and UPI, were in Le Conte Hall waiting for the scientists to authenticate the experiments. The then put an account and pictures throughout the world.”
If you read Wikipedia it gives the account of him using a bow device over an aluminum tuning fork, to produce the effects. But, he not only did that, he used only his voice, over a radio. The flame could not be affected by just wind from the speakers.
