From The Internet Scout Project

"... [T]he wireless world of the radio and its galaxy of musical choices has changed from the transmission of mere Morse code in its early decades to today's overwhelming choices afforded by different satellite radio companies. This recent documentary by the American RadioWorks program explores the history of American radio, and how it has been the site of many a cultural battle over the past ten decades. [The site]... include[s] maps that chart the growth of AM and FM stations from 1922 through 2006 and some engaging essays, such as "Radio Fights Jim Crow" and "Sex, Race and Rock & Roll". [KMG]
