Description - Radio in the Digital Age by Andrew Dubber
Radio?s influence can be found in almost every corner of new
media. Radio in the Digital Age assesses a medium that has
not only survived the challenges of a new technological age but
indeed has extended its reach. This is not a book about digital
radio, but rather about the medium of radio in its many analogue
and digital forms in an age characterised by digital technologies.
The context of the digital age reveals new insights about the
nature of radio.
In this important addition to the world of radio scholarship,
Dubber provides a theoretical framework for understanding the
medium - allowing for complexity and contradiction, while avoiding
essentialism and technological determinism. Introducing radio as a
series of practices and phenomena that can be understood through a
range of discursive categories, this book explores the
relationships between radio, music, politics, storytelling and
society in a new and thoughtful way.
This book will make essential reading for students of media,
communication, broadcasting and the digital industries. It offers a
timely and comprehensive introduction for anyone who wishes to
understand the role of radio in today?s media landscape.
