about this publication

Abstract: It is almost a truism to state that radio is the invisible medium - in the words of Peter Lewis, "radio is everybody's private possession, yet no one recognizes it in public". [1] However the ramifications of such invisibility are serious. It means radio is very much taken for granted as a background medium by its audiences. It means the impact of radio on our daily lives is under-researched and arguably under-valued as a result. It means that in a medium where the aim is precisely to erase all trace of technological artifice it is easy to underestimate or in fact ignore altogether the multi-faceted theory that informs this type of communication.
