“The History of Radio in New England” by Donna Halper

Historian and radio personality Donna Halper will join us to describe the early days of radio in New England, from its modest beginnings to what has become a multibillion-dollar industry. Donna was born here in Massachusetts and began working in the broadcasting field in 1968 as a DJ and music director. In 1974, while at WMMS in Cleveland she “discovered” the progressive rock band Rush. She has written several books, including the first book-length study devoted to the history of women in American broadcasting, Invisible Stars: A Social History of Women in American Broadcasting. She also has taught college-level courses in broadcasting, media criticism, media history and radio programming and has a PhD from UMass Amherst.
