Overview

The Airwaves of New York: Illustrated Histories of 156 AM Stations in the Metropolitan Area, 1921-1996 by Bill Jaker, Frank Sulek, Peter Kanze

From its inception in New York City, radio dramatically changed the city. The five boroughs became, in some ways, more united through the medium, as common concerns were aired and given wider attention. But as radio focused more on entertainment, the city lost the last of its small town origins, as people left the front stoop for the living room.
This heavily illustrated history traces the development and influence of AM radio in the New York metropolitan area, as well as providing technical data and program schedules of the stations.
