In Spain, the link between avant-garde and humour manifests itself in the phenomenon called humorism, to which Ramón Gómez de la Serna dedicated an essay in 1928. Based on this essay, the following article deals with Ramón's ,,radiohumorismo", a sequence of witty sketches about the radio, which were partly transmitted in the radio and also printed in the radio magazine Ondas between 1926 and 1933. This vast collection of texts celebrates the radio as the symbol of modern times and many aspects of the new medium are highlighted, such as the very special conditions of production and reception of a radio transmission, the 'blind' medium and its questionable authenticity, as well as the fascination of the voice itself and the accompanying technical sounds. The humour of the Spanish avant-garde proves thus to be a significant reaction to modern times.
