Jeff Porter – Lost Sound: The Forgotten Art of Radio Storytelling
English | Size: 288.73 MB

In Lost Sound, Jeff Porter examines the vital interplay between acoustic techniques and modernist practices in the growth of radio.

More people visit the Venetian hotel in Las Vegas, according to World’s Busiest Hotel (Channel 5), than visit Venice itself. Whoa! That’s extraordinary, isn’t it?
