Radio in Context by Guy Starkey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This applied text offers a comprehensive introduction to the principal skills involved in producing radio programming, from short packages to magazine programmes, from live sequences to drama, commercials and more. It sets production within a range of different contexts - professional, institutional and historical - providing the underpinning knowledge needed to reflect on radio for academic purposes. Organized around the most commonly-studied radio genres, Radio in Context offers an ideal blend of theory and practical guidance, which is particularly useful when writing evaluations. The book is supported by extensive illustrations, a full glossary, references to further reading, tips on getting into radio and exercises to develop practical and critical skills. It is ideal for anyone studying radio, the media, communications and/or journalism, at undergraduate and postgraduate levels - as well as for short courses in radio or audio production techniques.
