This volume, organized according to the Gregorian calendar, offers an overview of the developments that have significantly affected American network radio since its inception in the mid - 1920s. For each day of the 366-day calendar, there are three major categories of information that may be included: the occasions, practices, or decisions which left indelible marks on broadcasting (listed by date of occurrence); the programming that filled the airwaves (listed by date of debut and/or cancellation); and, the personalities most identified with those programs (listed by the date of birth and/or death).In the third category, the author has sought to present radio headliners along with more obscure individuals, from radio executives and producers to writers, sound techs, engineers, consultants, hawkers and impersonators. This title includes contributions made by numerous entertainment arenas that have heavily influenced radio programming, including vaudeville, theatre, film, and television, are also noted.
