January 13, 2022 “Since its inception, public radio has had a crucial role in broadcasting history - from FDR’s “Fireside Chats” to the Internet Age. In January of 1910, Enrico Caruso prepared to broadcasting his singing from the Metropolitan Opera House to locations throughout New York City. Inventor Lee DeForest suspended microphones in the wings of the Opera House and set up a transmitter and antenna. A flip of a switch magically sent forth sound and Public Radio was born.

This Is Chance By Jon Mooallem “In 1964, for four and a half minutes, the ground lurched and rolled. Streets cracked open and swallowed buildings whole.

With Heroic Truth: The Life of Edward R. Murrow by Norman H. Finkelstein Edward R. Murrow was one of America's "most dedicated and eloquent spokesmen. The people of the free world are deeply in his debt. So is broadcast journalism, which, in so many ways, he helped establish and to which he was one of the finest practitioners.

His thoughtful spirit of inquiry, his profound insight and his single-minded devotion to quality were without parallel in radio, television or any other medium." Read a review at GoodReads
