Editorial Reviews


“A thoughtful new study [and] a useful guide.”
(Benjamin Irvy Forward 2009-07-08)

“Kelman’s study sheds a refreshingly new perspective on Jewish immigrant culture.”
(Zachary M. Baker Assoc For Jewish Stds Review / Ajs Review 2011-07-06)

From the Inside Flap

"Station Identification represents a valuable and unique contribution to radio studies scholarship and to the cultural history of Yiddish in the United States. Ari Y. Kelman unearths the hitherto forgotten 'acoustic community' of Yiddish radio and demonstrates with impressive archival research that the story of Yiddish radio in the U.S. is inextricably woven together with the origins of American broadcasting. Uncanny and haimish, local and national, bilingual and ambivalent, Yiddish radio, like much early broadcasting, is the story of an audience tuning in to hear voices like their own."—Jason Loviglio, author of Radio's Intimate Public: Network Broadcasting and Mass-Mediated Democracy

"Kelman's lively study offers fascinating evidence of Yiddish radio's monumental importance in forging group ties across time, space, and generational experience."—Derek W. Valliant, author of Sounds of Reform: Progressivism and Music in Chicago, 1873-1935
