3 The Age of Broadcasting : Radio
Wim Coleman & Pat Perrin
68 pages, 5.5 x 4, paperback / softcover, History Compass
With its power to reach through the atmosphere, radio seemed like some sort of magic to the people who first experienced it during the early part of the 20th century. This anthology focuses on the experiences of some of the people who were directly involved in the invention, development, and heyday of broadcast radio. How was this new medium to be handled? What government controls would be involved? How could radio best serve the public interest? Also included, along with these topics, are some of the earliest advertising campaigns, transcripts of famous broadcasts of war news, sportscasts, entertainment, and more.
