July 14, 2021: Radio History on the Northern Border of Mexico
Border radio is one of our favorite topics at Radio Survivor and on this week’s episode we dig into the history of radio broadcasting on the northern border of Mexico. Scholar Sonia Robles shares the stories of some of the lesser-known, small broadcasters whose histories are often overshadowed by the wild tales of higher power border blaster stations. Robles is the author of Mexican Waves: Radio Broadcasting along Mexico’s Northern Border, 1930 – 1950 and Assistant Professor of History at University of Delaware. This episode was originally broadcast in August, 2020.
