Synopsis: This anthology explores artists' use of radio in the context of its history and role as a mass medium. Historically, radio has been a relatively unexplored aspect of artistic practices; this book asks why. Essays, artworks, interviews and creative texts consider the impact of a range of influences on radio art--from political, philosophical and aesthetic histories to social and cultural developments.
