About this item
Welcome to the uncertain world of "Radio 2.0"—where podcasts, mobile streaming, and huge music databases are the new reality, as are tweeting deejays and Apple's Siri serving as music announcer—and understand the exciting status this medium has, and will continue to have, in our digitally inclined society.
• Presents great stories about digital radio innovators and fascinating moments in the history of AM/FM that will explain to today's "Radio 2.0 generation" what radio once was—and what it could be again
• Documents the transformative impact of technologies such as the iPod and Pandora music streaming that enabled a highly individualized music-listening experience and changed the meaning of "community" from those literally surrounding a person locally to invisible users on worldwide systems like Spotify and SoundCloud
• Engages readers with interesting descriptions of new technologies and their possible applications plus stories about outrageous media figures in the digital age
