Women and Radio: Airing Differences
Psychology Press, 2000 - Performing Arts - 290 pages
From the very first days of national broadcasting at the BBC and the innovative work of producers and editors, through to Zoe Ball doing breakfast, women have been at the heart of radio, yet marginalized in the official histories. Combining classic work on radio with innovative research, journalism and biography, this book offers a variety of approaches to understanding the position of women as producers, presenters and consumers as well as offering guidelines, advice and helpful information for women wanting to work in radio. It examines the relationship between radio audiences, technologies and programming and reveals and explains the inequalities experienced by women working in the industry. It also provides a platform for the many contributions that women have made to broadcasting as producers and listeners of radio in both mainstream programming such as Woman's Hour and from the margins as represented by accounts of lesbian radio, feminist pirate broadcasts, local Asian radio and community stations.
