Biographies In Sound
1955 | NBC Radio
Auspiciously launched with a program based on the life of Winston Churchill, and concerning itself with such worthies as Helen Hayes, Carl Sandburg, Bernard Shaw, and Thomas Wolfe, Biographies In Sound combines the words of important and interesting persons with significant evaluations by those sufficiently close to them to speak with authority. If, as Emerson said, “there is properly no history, only biography,” and if, as Dr. Joseph Collins said, “biography is instructive to youth, inspiring to maturity, and solacing to old age,” here is a new concept in radio programming which adds dimensions not only to biography, but to history and education generally. As such, it merits the Peabody Award in radio education, which is hereby presented.
