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

Concentrating on the 1930s through the 1970s, but also speaking to the rising popularity of today’s narrative broadcasts, Porter’s close readings of key radio programs show how writers adapted literary techniques to an acoustic medium with great effect. Addressing avant-garde sound poetry and experimental literature on the air, alongside industry policy and network economics, Porter identifies the ways radio challenged the conventional distinctions between highbrow and lowbrow cultural content to produce a dynamic popular culture.

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?
