World Radio Day 2014: Growing Up with Radio Thu, 2014-02-13 18:07

For World Radio Day 2014 Kashfia Arif sits down with Dr. Caspar Melville, lecturer in the Center for Media & Film Studies at SOAS. Throughout the podcast Melville speaks about the influence radio had on his childhood in London and how radio has changed over the years. In this busy world filled with social networking sites and other media platforms, ?one of the great things about radio? says Melville, ?is the intimacy of it?. Through colourful descriptions, listeners can travel back in time with Dr. Melville and listen to John Peel on BBC Radio 1, experience the race wars of the 1980?s and party hop with the DJ?s of Kiss FM.
