Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This comprehensive encyclopedia offers over 1000 alphabetically arranged entries covering the history of U.S. and Canadian radio from the 1920s to the present. Show entries focus on synopses, stars, guests, theme songs, and sponsors, whereas personality entries (performers, technicians, and other prominent figures) center on that person's radio career. Although some entries cry out for more information (e.g., the Metropolitan Opera's radio broadcasts) and additional cross references would have been useful, two handy appendixes-a sponsor guide and a dramatic anthology log-are almost worth the price alone. Highly recommended as a complement to Vincent Terrace's Radio's Golden Years (LJ 5/15/81) and John Dunning's Tune in Yesterday (Prentice, 1976. o.p.).-Anthony J. Adam, Prairie View A&M Univ. Lib., Tex.
School Library Journal
YA-A fascinating look at the history of radio, both as a source of entertainment and of news. Lackman gives synopses of hundreds of the old favorite shows, from the 1920s on, with airtimes, short biographies of relevant personalities and network figures, and excellent descriptions of radio genres such as the popular mysteries and soap operas. Also included is information on news broadcasts including Roosevelt's "Fireside Chats," and news reporters turned entertainers such as Edward R. Murrow, Gabriel Heatter, and Elmer Davis. The black-and-white photographs aptly create a feeling for the times. The index is comprehensive. Appendixes list information about sponsors, museums, newsletters, chronologies of radio events in the United States and Canada, and other interesting data.-Nancy Geiger, Lee High School, Fairfax, VA
Alphabetically lists some 1,000 descriptive entries featuring personalities, programs (including quiz shows, news programs, music programs, comedy, mysteries, and drama), networks, and significant concepts relating to radio broadcasts. The guide encompasses North American radio from the 1920s to the present and features some 120 vintage portraits. Appendices include chronologies of events, lists of sponsors, and radio show clubs and newsletters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
