African Broadcast Cultures: Radio in Transition
by Richard Fardon; Graham Furniss

Abstract:
Radio has played a pivotal role in Africa situations of conflict, crisis, and in the overall development of the African continent. No other medium of communication in Africa comes close to radio in terms of audience, political significance and cultural power. Local radio stations as well as international broadcasters have been at once the barometers and the agents of change. This book provides a timely and cross-continental perspective on a much-neglected aspect of African public culture in its political structures and economic fortunes.
