Piece Comment

Review of Early Radio

This is a nice reflection on the affect of radio on its earliest listeners. It includes wonderful clips from original programs and first person accounts of how radio was received and experienced at the start.

The main purpose of the piece seemed to be to shine light on historical information. It was fun to listen to, but there didn’t seem to be a strong driving point. This made listening a little bland.

I could imagine this piece fitting in well during a week of celebrating radio’s contribution to society, entertainment, and culture.
