Radio Survivor

On this week’s episode, schol­ar Lerone Mar­tin shares with us the fas­ci­nat­ing his­to­ry of African-Amer­i­can preach­ers who dis­trib­uted their ser­mons on 78rpm records dur­ing a time when they had lim­it­ed access to the radio in the 1920s-1940s. 

Mar­tin, Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor in Reli­gion and Pol­i­tics at the John C. Dan­forth Cen­ter on Reli­gion and Pol­i­tics at Wash­ing­ton Uni­ver­si­ty in St. Louis, is the author of Preach­ing on Wax: The Phono­graph and the Mak­ing of Mod­ern African Amer­i­can Religion.
