A Radio Renaissance?

Earlier this month, KSPC (88.7 FM) hosted the University of California Radio Conference and, via Jennifer Waits at radiosurvivor.com, we learn that media theorist and keynote speaker Douglas Rushkoff believes that “radio is in a renaissance.”

Rushkoff argued that radio is “emotional” and that it contains a ‘tremendous physical intimacy.’ He contrasted radio with television, saying that “radio is still human,” whereas television is ‘flat,’ and creates a more emotionally distanced viewing experience, making it more aligned with ‘irony’ and ‘snark.’
