"How Radio Was Done" Part 9 (Solo): From the late ’40s into the early ’50s, we continue to cover developments of the time on the radio. Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose "flight" is covered live in 1947, the Beats emerge to become beatniks, dope enters mainstream radio fiction, Lenny Bruce ties for first place on Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts in ’48, the term, "Rock & Roll" enters our musical language, and the Communist menace is accompanied by atomic civil defense.
