Learn about the part small radio stations played in music history. Discover how the introduction of laser technology revolutionized the way music is recorded today. This is a great title for capturing the imagination of the middle school reluctant reader. It is filled with pictures, diagrams and brief facts and there is glossary and an index. This is one of four titles in the "Modern Media" series which includes Telecommunications, Film & TV and The Computer Age. 2000, Barron's Educational Series Inc., Ages 10 to 14, $5.95.
