Volume 1 of this 10 volume set from historian Roger C. Paulson promises to be the most complete old-time radio encyclopedia ever written. At least seven times the size of John Dunning's On the Air, this massive tome has been 20 years in the making and is a MUST for any fan of radio history. With biographies of its (even obscure) series and stars, it is the most comprehensive set ever attempted! Everything from A&P Bandwagon to Ivan Cury is covered here in an overwhelming amalgamation of biographical material that is sure to please the casual observer as well as the steadfast researcher of radio and early recorded sound. Birthdates, deathdates, credit lists, cross-referenced with alternate show names, Archives of the Airwaves far surpasses any book on radio history ever before published.
