When Tipper Gore and the PMRC called rock and rap stars to testify in front of Congress about explicit lyrics, did this affect college radio? How could it not? Prof. Kate Jewell is examining the relationship between college stations and the culture wars as part of a new book project.
Jewell is Associate Professor of History at Fitchburg State University and a Fellow at the University Connecticut Humanities Institute. She joins the show to talk about how college broadcasts triggered conservative community reaction and outrage, and how stations internalized the cultural controversies that dominated the zeitgeist from the 1960s through the turn of the century.Radio Survivor is a listener-supported podcast.
