Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Out of the Dark] vividly illustrates the dramatic social and cultural change radio brought to isolated rural Americans from the 1920s through World War II and the postwar years. Craig brings readers an intimate, detailed understanding of radio’s role in shaping rural audiences and general American society during the 20th century.”
—Louise Benjamin, author of Freedom of the Air and Public Interest: Establishing First Amendment Rights on Broadcasting to 1935


"Steve Craig's excellent book on the history of rural radio [is] well-written, readable [and] includes both statistical data and stories that bring rural radio alive. I am guessing that many people with rural roots would resonate to this book even if they don't teach media history as I do. Too often, media historians ignore the history of media outside New York and Washington, DC. This book is a welcome addition to that literature and the overall history of radio.”—Communication Research Trends
