The Museum of Broadcast Communications encyclopedia of radio
"A premise of this unique encyclopedia is that radio broadcasting is so pervasive that its importance can be easily overlooked. More than 600 articles provide ample illustration of the role this medium plays throughout the world. From radio's invention to radio on the Internet, the cross-referenced and thoroughly indexed articles analyze over 100 years of topics, programs, issues, people, and places, and provide leads to further reading. Some 250 photographs "give visual context to an often unseen world." Scholars, old-time-radio admirers, and curious readers will appreciate the unparalleled comprehensiveness of this source."--"The Top 20 Reference Titles of the Year," American Libraries, May 2004.
