Reviews about Don't Touch That Dial (3):
Throw her heart
Excellent history of old-time radio (1920 to 1960), the principle entertainment for America, until the radio stations astonished listeners by yanking the plug on regular shows, even soap operas, in 1962, all at the same time. Even the actors didn't know it was coming. Television had taken over. Book covers all aspects of radio, from fascinating broadcast history, shows and networks, to actors, the war years (World War II) and personalities. Highly recommend.
Exellent
Although I was born after the era when radio was the main entertainment for American homes, I enjoy OTR today with more than 1,000 hours of shows on CDs and my computer hardware. I always delight in reading about OTR and those who created it. "Don't Touch That Dial" brings those creative people and shows to life for me. I have learned so much from Mr. MacDonald.
Qucid
Excellent book about the early days of OTR. The genre chapters were especially good and included separate characterizations by type which were fascinating. The last several chapters dealing with politics were off-putting,however,because of the authors bias.
Orevise
For anyone who is a fan of the Golden era of radio this is the book to have on your shelf it’s a great reference guide while you are listening to programs like Jack Benny,Vic and Sade,Suspense,The Lone Ranger.
