Against the Grain

The Rise of Internet Radio

Radio in the twentieth century, which you could tune into in your car or at home, had a mass audience and was a collective experience, for good or ill. Radio today, which can be listened to when and how you want it, is a more private and atomized affair. Historian Matthew Lasar discusses the social and political choices and circumstances that led to the decline of broadcast radio and the rise of internet radio.
