"I can think of no monograph on mediated sound since Sterne's The Audible Past that charts so many exciting avenues of scholarship while building upon the tremendous work that precedes his study. [...] Any scholar or critic invested in the soundscapes and cultures of postwar media within or without the US - cinema, radio, television, print, and even such post-postwar audiovisual media as the home computer and the smartphone - must hereafter contend with the concepts so richly developed in Theater of the Mind." -- Paul Young (Vanderbilt University), The Journal of American Studies
"Offering ample depth and breadth to satisfy the specialist, yet accessibly written and concretely supported, the book provides scholars and students of American radio history, American studies, and American history critical concepts for assessing and interpreting the formal characteristics, conventions, and styles of classic radio drama." -- Journal of Radio & Audio Media
