Product Description


«A giant among radio scholars, Michael C. Keith has done it again with a new collection of essays from leading researchers. The depth and breadth of the book’s topics is impressive and meaningful and constitutes an invaluable document for scholars of broadcasting and all who teach and study radio.» (Donald G. Godfrey, Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Arizona State University)
«Michael C. Keith, the foremost champion of radio studies, has assembled the pantheon of scholars in the field for this fascinating anthology. Their collective work leaves readers with a heightened sense of the medium’s profound impact in the United States and its reflection of American diversity.» (Mary Ann Watson, Eastern Michigan University)
«As usual, Michael C. Keith has found yet another way to make a significant and unique contribution to radio studies. ‘Radio Cultures’ is brilliantly organized to simultaneously fill several gaps in the literature of the sound medium. He has recruited an excellent team of contributors to create a work that covers key issues both little-known and misunderstood.» (Pete Orlik, Central Michigan University)
«Michael C. Keith has brought together an outstanding set of original essays covering a broad array of topics that show how deeply embedded radio is in American culture.» (Michael Brown, Professor, University of Wyoming; Editor, ‘Journal of Radio and Audio Media’)
