1930's short story: "The First Martian" by Eando Binder

Thanks to another generous fan of old magazines at the Internet Archive, you can read or download “The First Martian,” a short story written by Eando Binder (a pen-name used by science fiction writers and brothers Earl Binder and Otto Binder) and illustrated by pulp artist Leo Morey, as it was originally published in the October 1932 issue of Amazing Stories magazine. It’s a tale of first contact and commerce with a friendly Martian culture.

"Our continued experiments in radio and television may play a much more important part in the eventual realization of successful interplanetary travel than we can possible conceive of right now. But if we stop a moment to think about it, the possibilities of such closely allied work between radio, television and rocket travel tale on vast proportions—one phase of which is vividly portrayed in this short science fiction gem."
