In Lost Sound, Jeff Porter examines the vital interplay between acoustic techniques and modernist practices in the growth of radio.
Concentrating on the 1930s through the 1970s, but also speaking to the rising popularity of today's narrative broadcasts, Porter's close readings of key radio programs show how writers adapted literary techniques to an acoustic medium with great effect. Addressing avant-garde sound poetry and experimental literature on the air, alongside industry policy and network economics, Porter identifies the ways radio challenged the conventional distinctions between highbrow and lowbrow cultural content to produce a dynamic popular culture.

Editorial Reviews

Jeff Porter has brilliantly filled the huge gap on radio's greatest contributions to twentieth-century American culture by offering the strongest argument to date that the first electronic mass medium brought something of genuine significance to the nation's literary canon. Lost Sound is thorough and timely, and the narrative is lucid and consequential. I'm pleased and thrilled that there will now exist-at long last-a definitive work on the subject.-Michael C. Keith, Boston College

Lost Sound shows that in our phonophobic culture, we have forgotten to attend to radio's literary past, preferring to see our precious written word as the primary source of literary expression. As Jeff Porter reveals, however, sound technologies such as radio offer powerful and alternative modes of artistic production. Writing with real beauty, energy, and verve, Jeff Porter has made a significant contribution to our critical understanding of this important medium.-Kathy M. Newman, Carnegie Mellon University
