Die Zukunft des Radios in Zeiten digitaler Mitbewerber treibt alle Radiomacher um. Leider wird dabei häufig nur über den technischen Wandel gesprochen. Der inhaltliche Wandel ist aber mindestens genauso wichtig. Deshalb liefert Radio 4.0 Thesen und mögliche Zukunftsszenarien, aber auch Anregungen zur Gestaltung zukunftssicherer Radioprogramme. Radio 4.0 beschäftigt sich mit den technischen Veränderungen in den Übertragungswegen und deren Implikationen für Programmmacher. Darüber hinaus wird die Veränderung im Anbietermarkt durch neue Mitbewerber im Audiosegment, wie Streamingdiensten oder Podcastanbietern, analysiert und es werden Forecast-Szenarien für mögliche Veränderungen im Nutzerverhalten entwickelt. Auch die Herausforderung durch soziale Medien wird erörtert. Der Schwerpunkt liegt jedoch in der Bedeutung des Faktors Mensch für die weitere positive Entwicklung des Mediums Radio in der Zukunft. So liefert dieses Buch Argumente für eine größere Anstrengung, Radio durch Personalities unverwechselbar zu machen. Radio 4.0 will Mitarbeitern wie Verantwortlichen Mut machen, ausgetretene Pfade zu verlassen und das Radio zukunftsfähig zu gestalten.

This richly detailed examination of two branches of American entertainment focuses on the various ways that radio stations and air personalities have been depicted in motion pictures, from 1926’s The Radio Detective to more recent films like 2006’s A Prairie Home Companion. Cinematic portrayals of various aspects of radio are covered, including disc jockeys, sports broadcasts, religious programs, and the talk-radio format. Such films as The Big Broadcast (1932), Reveille with Beverly (1943), Mister Rock and Roll (1957), WUSA (1970), Radio Days (1987) and Private Parts (1997) provide fascinating insights not only into their own times, but also into the historical eras that some of these films have endeavored to recreate. A chronological filmography of more than 600 titles is included.

William Gaddis published only four novels during his lifetime, but with those works he earned himself a reputation as one of America's greatest novelists. Less well known is Gaddis's body of excellent critical writings. Here is a wide range of his original essays, some published for the first time. From "'Stop Player. Joke No. 4,'" Gaddis's first national publication and the basis for his projected history of the player piano, to the title essay about missed opportunities in America during the past fifty years, to "Old Foes with New Faces," an examination of the relationship between the writer and the problem of religion-this diverse collection displays the power of an autonomous literary intelligence in an age increasingly dominated by political and religious conservatism.

The crack of the bat on the radio is ingrained in the American mind as baseball takes center stage each summer. Radio has brought the sounds of baseball into homes for almost one hundred years, helping baseball emerge from the 1919 Black Sox scandal into the glorious World Series of the 1920s. The medium gave fans around the country aural access to the first All-Star Game, Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech, and Bobby Thomson’s “Shot Heard ’Round the World.” Red Barber, Vin Scully, Harry Caray, Ernie Harwell, Bob Uecker, and dozens of other beloved announcers helped cement the love affair between radio and the national pastime. Crack of the Bat takes readers from the 1920s to the present, examining the role of baseball in the development of the radio industry and the complex coevolution of their relationship. James R. Walker provides a balanced, nuanced, and carefully documented look at radio and baseball over the past century, focusing on the interaction between team owners, local and national media, and government and business interests, with extensive coverage of the television and Internet ages, when baseball on the radio had to make critical adjustments to stay viable. Despite cable television’s ubiquity, live video streaming, and social media, radio remains an important medium through which fans engage with their teams. The evolving relationship between baseball and radio intersects with topics as varied as the twenty-year battle among owners to control radio, the development of sports as a valuable media product, and the impact of competing technologies on the broadcast medium. Amid these changes, the familiar sounds of the ball hitting the glove and the satisfying crack of the bat stay the same.

Although James Duthie’s daughter had hoped he would write a book featuring princesses, dragons or zebras, you won’t miss them in The Day I (Almost) Killed Two Gretzkys. Instead Duthie interviews a prophet monkey who predicts games’ outcomes, confesses to the near-homicide of both Walter and Wayne Gretzky, and provides plenty of evidence of his unhealthy obsession with Anna Kournikova. He weighs in on famous athletes like Sidney Crosby, Tiger Woods, Tom Brady and Derek Jeter, and tells his misadventures as a sportscaster, fan, father, husband and son.
