Arnheim treats all aspects of sound. He explores words and music as kinds of sounds; discusses direction and distance, spatial resonance, sequence and juxtaposition in radio sound; makes comparisons between sound film and radio techniques and effects; and details the benefits of imagination with sound from a creative and emotional point of view. The art of announcing, the psychology of the listener, and two generalized discussions of radio around the world, and the prospects for television are covered in the last chapters.

BLACKLISTING: Two Key Documents
_ The Judges and the Judged by Merle Miller (New York, 1952)
_ Report on Blacklisting by John Cogley (New York, 1956)
Miller's report for the American Civil Liberties Union on his investigations of blacklisting activities in radio and television and of publications like the book, Red Channels and the newsletter, Counterattack which listed "left-leaning" people while charging that there existed a blacklist of anti-Communists, assesses the impact of blacklisting on casting and program content. Cogley's Report, sponsored by the Fund for the Republic, offers no opinion on the practice of blacklisting, but seeks to ascertain all the facts involved through interviews, as far as they were possible, with every important interest concerned -executives of radio and TV chains, advertising agencies, leading advertisers, theatrical unions, leaders of anti-Communist organizations, and others prominent in "listing" or "clearing" individuals, and many producers, directors, actors, writers, reporters, news commentators, and agency men.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF RADIO
This pioneering behavioral study provided the basis for much of later radio research. It dealt first with the "mental setting, " or the structure of the radio industry. The second part gave a detailed analysis of the role of different voices on the air and how listeners perceived what they heard. "Practical Interpretations" took the first two parts and applied them specifically to program preparation, programming in general, advertising effectiveness, and educational programming. Much of the material was presented in 45 tables.
