Encyclopedia of American Radio 1920­-1960

by Luther F. Sies

McFarland, 2000


Comprising nearly 29,000 entries, this massive volume comprehensively covers the performers and programming on American radio from its inception to its golden age. The OTR hobbyist will find lots of information about favorite detective series and actors.

The encyclopedia includes entries for programs, announcers, orchestras, musicians, vocalists, comedians, vocal groups, readers, whistlers, musical saw soloists, ministers, sports commentators, reviewers (of books, plays and movies), celebrities, and other personnel broadcasting over American radio from the 1920s to the 1960s. Additional entries cover commercial radio, educational broadcasting, firsts in radio history, opera on radio, religious broadcasting, sports broadcasting, women in radio, border radio, children's programs, comedy on radio, crime shows and mysteries, daytime dramatic serials, and disk jockeys, among other topics.

An incredibly useful reference tool.
