CHOICE Review

The interesting and varied almost-century long history of British radio is treated in a second edition compiled by Street (emer., Bournemouth Univ., UK). In this expanded work, he covers the last decade of developments in British radio and offers 200 additional entries, several revised entries, and an updated introductory essay. The more than 830 entries in the volume are well written, covering the history of the BBC, commercial radio, and pirate radio. Other topics treated include radio stations (Radio Luxembourg, Classic FM, BBC Radio 1), specific programs (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Desert Island Discs, The Archers), types of programming (music, news, religious programming, sports, drama), regulatory bodies (Radio Authority, Office of Communications), and technology (Uher, MP3, Marconi-Stille System). The entries on individuals span a wide array of announcers, entertainers, radio executives, disc jockeys, and radio journalists. Most entries range in length from 100 to 200 words. The dictionary includes a nine-page chronology and an excellent detailed bibliography (nearly 20 pages long). Overall, this thorough guide is an easily used resource for all who follow the subject of radio history. Summing Up: Recommended. All academic audiences; general readers; professionals/practitioners. --Bradley P. Tolppanen, Eastern Illinois University
