Radio Survivor

Por­tray­als of radio in pop­u­lar cul­ture pro­vide an inter­est­ing glimpse at radio’s role in soci­ety. At Radio Sur­vivor, we’ve long been fas­ci­nat­ed by radio depic­tions on both the small and large screen; so it is a treat to dive into this top­ic with Hem­rani Vyas, Pro­gram­ming Coor­di­na­tor at Turn­er Clas­sic Movies (TCM). Vyas curat­ed an entire day of radio-themed films for the cable net­work, focus­ing on the era of 1930 to 1950. This week we talk about some of the fea­tured films and also dig into a broad­er dis­cus­sion about the chang­ing images of radio in the movies.
