What People are Saying About This

Tim Crook

A Tour de force of research and writing...full of creative and complex characters...Howard Blue is to be congratulated on the writing and publication of his book. He has retrieved a valuable story and begun a long and complex academic investigation into the role of radio drama as propaganda and the value of audio drama texts in cultural studies.
