Description - Radio Goes to War by Gerd Horten
This comprehensive volume looks in-depth at the role of domestic radio in the United States during World War II. By examining radio news programmes, government propaganda shows, advertising, soap opera and comedy programmes, it situates radio wartime propaganda in the shift from Depression-era resentment of big business to the consumer and corporate culture of the postwar period.
