Synopsis: Book by Doll, Bob

From Booklist: Doll's fact-filled, anecdotal history of small-town radio is the perfect adjunct to Blast from the Past: A Pictorial History of Radio's First 75 Years. Doll portrays all the "silent" people, the impassioned, not to say fanatic station founders and managers who committed themselves to rural broadcasting in spite of paltry financial returns. In the 1920s, for instance, a Minnesota station closed down because it couldn't afford a replacement tube that cost $27.50. Other seat-of-their-pants stations were closed for failing to meet Federal Radio Commission standards, not only for broadcasting but for simple housecleaning. And then there are the visionaries, like the pharmacist who named his station KGDE for "Kills Gloomy Dull Evenings." As Doll moves into radio's Golden Age and beyond, he contrasts big-city and small-town broadcasting, chronicles skirmishes with the recording industry and newspapers, documents technological advances, describes the evolution of programming, and considers the mixed blessings of advertising. Donna Seaman
