About this product
- DescriptionTo today's radio listener, it is difficult to imagine the influence radio once held over the American people. Unlike movies or newspapers, radio both informed and entertained its audience without requiring them to participate. Part of its success depended upon the people who created the sound effects - a squeaking door, the approach of a horse, or a typewriter. The author did live sound effects during the Golden Age of radio. He provides many insights into the early days of the medium as it grappled with entertaining an audience based on a single sense (hearing). How the sounds were produced is fully covered as are the artists responsible for their production. Stories of successful effects production are balanced by embarrassing or funny failures. A list of artists and their shows is included.
- Author BiographyThe late <b>Robert L. Mott</b> had a long career doing sound effects for films, cartoons, theater, commercials--and for radio (such as <i>Gangbusters, Philip Morris Playhouse<i> and <i>Perry Mason</i>), and television (including <i>Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, The Tonight Show, Playhouse 90, Captain Kangaroo</i> and <i>Bob Hope</i>).
