Overview

Loviglio (American studies, communications and media studies, U. of Maryland Baltimore County) argues that in the 1930s and 1940s radio helped produce a new kind of social space in which the terms "public" and "private" came to represent a complex web of social performances constantly in play. Considering such programs as Franklin Roosevelt's Fireside Chats, Vox Pop, soap operas, and The Shadow, he examines the way radio performances negotiated the preoccupation with public and private. In his conclusion, Loviglio addresses the legacy of radio's intimate public. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
