This is our second episode examining the history and legacy of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 in recognition of the law’s 20th anniversary. This time around Prof. John Anderson from Brooklyn College explains how Reagan-era deregulation, culminating in the Telecom Act, triggered civil disobedience on the airwaves along with citizen action that continues to push for communications democracy today.
In College Radio Watch Jennifer Waits reveals the early history of college radio through the story of Haverford College’s station, which went on the air in 1923.
