Effective Educational Radio: An Approach to Analyzing Programs.
Theroux, James M.
This overview of current trends in radio program design presents program characteristics which should be considered in the design and production of educational radio programs. A variety of descriptive terms are presented and defined as program variables which can be manipulated to create a desired effect. For each term presented a diagnostic question is proposed, attempting to stimulate producers to inquire about why a given program succeeds or fails. General guidelines are outlined, the use of speakers is discussed, effective studio techniques are defined, and a pedagogical base for program design is presented. (RAO)
