Summary

While cultural historians and media scholars have been looking at television for decades, they have only recently turned their eyes (and ears) to radio. Studies of television rarely acknowledge that many of its forms-soap operas, situation comedies, quiz shows, sportscasts, etc.-all evolved out of the earlier medium. The essays collected here demonstrate that radio set patterns that have effected all forms of media that have followed it, and also look at how it has survived the coming of media that supposedly made it obsolete. RadioReaderinvestigates compelling topics like gender in postwar suspense dramas, racial representation andThe Green Hornet, American radio propagandists for the Axis Powers, and the history of National Public Radio. This exciting volume not only provides a survey of the best work being done in an emerging field, it also points to new ways of thinking about cultural history and media studies.Radio Readeris sure to become a classic work in thehistory of popular culture and mass media.
