Samenvatting

Before screens could be stared at, listeners lent their ears to radio, and Canadian listeners were as avid as any. In Canada before Television, Len Kuffert takes us back to the earliest days of broadcasting, paying particular attention to how programs were imagined and made, loved and hated, regulated and tolerated. At a time when democracy stood out as a foundational value in the West, Canada's private stations and the CBC often had conflicting ideas about what should or could be broadcast. While historians have documented the nationalist and culturally aspirational motives of some broadcasters, the story behind the production of programs for both broad and specialized audiences has not been as effectively told. By interweaving archival evidence with insights drawn from secondary literature, Canada before Television offers perspectives on radio's intimate power, the promise and challenge of US programming and British influences, the regulation of taste on the air, shifting and varied musical appetites, and the difficulties of knowing what listeners wanted. While this mixed system divided Canadians then and now, the presence of more than one vision for the emerging medium made the early years of broadcasting in Canada more culturally democratic for listeners who stood a better chance of getting both what they already liked and what they might come to like. Canada before Television offers an insightful look at the place of radio and debates about programming in the development of a cultural democracy.

Recensie(s)

This is a seminal work in the study of the culture of radio. Kuffert's vast research into many untapped sources has produced a book that is meticulously documented, well-written, and completely engaging. Indeed, his conclusion ties neatly together all of [Kuffert] has immersed himself in archives on both sides of the Atlantic and has written an engaging account of the subject. British Journal of Canadian Studies In a good-hearted and sympathetic way, [Kuffert] charts the impact of radio when it was young. The National Post Kuffert makes a compelling case that the story here is one of the broadcaster trying to discern listeners' taste, and attempting to appeal to as well as shape it - a provocative book, rich in its methodology and scholarship.
