"This book is a significant achievement and a welcome addition to the small list of publications on this subject. It gives those of us who work in the field a chance to see where we have come from and an opportunity to reflect on where we are headed."-Mr. Frank Blythe Founding Member and Executive Director Native American Public Broadcasting Consortium

Signals covers underrepresented topic Dec 10 1999
By B. Freeman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Perhaps it is as a result of the influx of newer media or the fact that it's always been around for most of us, that we often take radio for granted. And yet what a valuable resource the signals that permeate the ether can be. Take for example the role of radio in the Native American community. That's exactly the subject of Keith's book. I borrowed it from a professor of mine and am enjoying the read. It's an interesting and important treatise on the underreported native broadcasters. If you love radio, especially the kind that really serves a community (that's me!), and are at all into programming aspects, I recommend you get the book.
