Abstract

A short article reviewing, commenting on, and placing into broader context other articles in a special edition of Media History journal devoted to Radio Modernism. The article identifies common themes, including an interest in collage, the everyday, subjectivity, rhythm and musicality. It also suggests a need to move academic attention towards 'banal' everyday output, suggesting that radio's modernist character resides, above all, in the kaleidoscopic character of its total schedule or output rather than in individual programmes.
