A new exploration of radio as a mouthpiece for the Soviet State across the vast territories of Russia. Shows that while radio offered a new communication method for Soviet politics, it also led to the State's downfall. Engages with social, cultural, institutional, and technological history to offer a many-sided portrait of Soviet broadcasting. And also contains lively discussion of programme content, as well as shedding much light on the broadcasting profession and the listening public.
