Radio drama is often called the “theatre of the mind”, wherein a listener’s imagination is stimulated by voices, sounds, and music to create mental imagery as real as any bricks-and-mortar theatre.
Reg James spent a lifetime in the thick of Australian radio drama. Rising through the ranks at Grace Gibson Radio Productions — from despatch boy to general manager — he takes us behind the scenes into the fascinating world of broadcasting from the 1930s to the present day. The great shows, the magic voices, the pure drama of putting shows to air — Reg shares his secrets and stories in this amazing journey back in time to a lost era.
With co-author James Aitchison, Reg invites you to join him in this unique theatre.
Essential reading for anyone who enjoyed listening to radio serials, and for those fascinated by Australian radio.
