Radio Daze

Virginia Postrel has a great post on how content and aesthetics drove the launch of radio in the late 1920s and 1930s. Long before the Web–heck, long before television, radio was the new technology of the pre-World War II era. We take it for granted today, but how remarkable it must have seemed when it first debuted.

(Woody Allen, before auguring his career into the ground, did a wonderful job of capturing that era with Radio Days.)
