National Public Radio: The Cast of Characters


Every day, millions of Americans tune in to their local public radio stations, and much of what they hear -- news, music, and other cultural offerings -- comes from National Public Radio in Washington, D. C.

This visually stunning and engagingly written book traces the history of NPR from its tentative beginnings in 1971, through its financial crisis and growth in the 1980s, to its current status as a preeminent source of news and entertainment".... informative, charming, even compelling... The photographs and design are absolutely first-rate and make the book a joy for all of us hooked on public radio". -- Doug Bennet, former NPR President
