About this product
- DescriptionFeatured October 11, 2006 on NPR/WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi Show In a post 9/11 world where a few ruthless men and women can use modern techlogy to create powerful webs of conspiracy, the public voice of radio is needed more than ever. Computers trap us in the blue glow of their virtual reality. Cell phones connect us, but what do we have to say to each other and especially to the poor that will impact their lives? Radio attempts to answer this question. Radio listening groups helped Tanzania create a new democracy in the aftermath of colonialism. Radio taught young children in Kenya to speak English and made learning their ABCs a lively and exciting adventure. Radio learning groups taught Honduran and Ecuadorian mothers the benefits of breast-feeding. Learn along with millions of British the fate of Grace who dies in an accidental barn fire as the BBC tries to teach post-war UK farmers to avoid the same fate. Live the trials of families in India faced with the pressure of traditional customs, trying to deal with the challenges of a modern world. These lessons of radio's potency are being submerged in the clutter of new tech gadgets, gimmicks, and gizmos. Co-authors Stephen Sposato and Wm. Smith bring these little kwn stories to life and revive our faith in radio as a truly modern tool of social change. They help us to understand the changes undergone in U.S. governmental broadcasting as attempts are made to make today's radio relevant in the Middle East and beyond. Authors' royalties from this book will be donated to four prominent n-profit educational foundations, all radio practitioners: The Academy for Educational Development, Freeplay Foundation, Pas and Population Communications International(PCI).
