Jeff Demers, N1SNB writes on PART/WB1GOF:
Marc Fisher, of the Washington Post, will be speaking in Andover on Thursday, February 8, 2007 at 7:00 p.m at the Massachusetts School of Law. The subject of Fisher’s presentation will be the history of broadcast radio based on his new book Radio, Rock and the Revolution that Shaped a Generation. Fisher writes The Listener, a radio column in Post’s Sunday Arts section.
Ham operators like Todd Storz, W9DYG, were instrumental in keeping broadcast radio alive when television was rapidly expanding, according to Fisher. New technology would not wipe out an old media and radio survived, ultimately changing itself and the nation. For radio aficionados this book is a must read.
The event is free and open to the public.
