About this title


In Voice Over, a celebration and history, William Barlow explores the landscape of black radio from the early days - when the white public accepted the black-face buffoonery of The Amos and Andy Show and Beulah as a fair depiction of African American life - to the rise of personality jocks and the contemporary scene of corporate buyouts and uncertain fate.

From the Publisher:

Shipping Terms:

Shipping costs are based on books of average size. All orders to California addresses will be charged California sales tax of 7.75% at the time of order placement through a separate e-mail notification. Domestic shipping is at cost, usually $4.00 for normal octavo sized books via Media surface mail. Large heavy items requiring extra postage will be quoted separately to the buyer when placing an order through ABE. Priority Mail is $10.00. This price will only be charged if the book will not fit into a smaller flat rate envelope. If the book does fit into the smaller envelope Albion Books will adjust the cost to the customer down to the normal $5.50 flat rate charge before processing the order. This avoids having to query the customer in order to approve extra shipping charges. If the book is too large to fit into the $10.00 flat rate box the buyer will be quoted actual costs based on their postal zone and the weight from Irvine, California. For international orders Global Priority shipping is used when the book will fit into the standard large Global Priority envelope and Global Priority services are available to that destination. For books too large to fit the GPM envelope the buyer will be quoted extra postage charges based on the Parcel Post Air rate, always considerably higher than the Global Priority rate. All flat rate Global Priority mailings are $25.00 to all countries except Canada and Mexico, which are $23.00. Albion Books will adjust downward the airmail shipping from the listed rate at the time of order placement if the book will fit into the flat rate envelope. An ABE e-mail will inform the buyer of this lower rate. We do not recommend economy surface mail for international posting due to the extreme slowness of this method and the high risk for fraud.
