Excerpt from Modern Radio
Studios have been designed where the quality or tone Of a pro gram may be changed by merely pressing a button. Echo chambers and echo machines have been invented that make a Voice sound as if it were coming from a cave or from the bottom Of a well. S... ound effect machines can reproduce the sounds of soldiers march ing, thunder, subway trains, a man being stabbed, and hundreds Of other sounds. New types Of microphones have been developed. New master control switching facilities have been designed to handle the ever-increasing number Of programs coming from studios all over the country and by short wave radio from Europe and South America. New types of antenna systems have been invented.
The studio itself, the quality Of the radio equipment, the skill of the technicians, the directing and timing, and many other things affect the production Of any program. The variety Of programs affects the design Of the studio and the radio facilities that go into it, and the type and number Of studios that a large broadcast ing company must have.
If you have ever been to a radio broadcast, you probably have noticed that each actor or actress reads the lines from a script. This might leave you with the false impression that very little rehearsing is necessary to produce a radio Show. Reading the script does save the time that would be required for each actor or actress to memorize the' lines, but a great deal of time is still spent rehearsing. Some Of the actors do memorize most Of their lines, but they must always be prepared for changes which may be made in their script right up to the time they go on the air.
