By Susan J. Douglas

Few innovations evoke such nostalgia, such deeply own and shiny thoughts as radio—from Amos ’n’ Andy and Edward R. Murrow to Wolfman Jack and Howard Stern. Listening In is the 1st in-depth background of the way radio tradition and content material have kneaded and extended the yankee psyche.

But Listening In is greater than a heritage. it's also a reconsideration of what hearing radio has performed to American tradition within the 20th century and the way it has introduced a very new auditory measurement to our lives. Susan Douglas explores how listening has altered our day by day reviews and our personal generational identities, cultivating various modes of listening in numerous eras; how radio has formed our perspectives of race, gender roles, ethnic obstacles, family members dynamics, management, and the iteration hole. together with her trademark wit, Douglas has created an eminently readable cultural heritage of radio.

THE RELATION BETWEEN FLARE-RELATED METRIC CONTINUUM BURSTS AND CORONAL MASS EJECTIONS* R. D. ROBINSON Anglo-Australian Observatory, Epping NSW 2121, Australia Abstract. We present the results of a study to determine the relationship between flare-related metre wavelength continuum outburts and coronal mass ejection events. Using radio data obtained with thc Culgoora radioheliograph and optical data from the SOLWIND experiment aboard the P-78 satellite we find a good temporal and positional overlap between the two types of events.
