About this item

As radio entered homes and became an increasingly important component of society, it affected not only the soundscape of everyday life but had architectural consequences. By looking at the material culture of radio in 1930s Canada, this publication offers a new way to think about a medium closely associated with twentieth-century modernity. Expensive consoles and cheaper tabletop models joined furniture in the living room, affecting interior design while providing access to the wider world with the turn of a dial. The new electronic medium remapped space, simultaneously situating listeners within regions and linking them to far-flung locations.
