Description

Radio made its debut in the early twentieth century, and the world was never the same. The mysterious magic box brought people together as no other communication medium had ever done. In Nothing On but the Radio, author Gil Murray tells how the new household toy put voices and music into millions of homes. In the 1920s, families gathered around the crystal set; in the 1930s, radio comedians helped offset the Depression; in the wartime 1940s, radio kept up morale; in the 1950s and 1960s, its music, news, and information spread knowledge and entertainment. This book spotlights a popular revolution that was never quiet.
