Summary This text examines a critical point in US broadcasting in the late 1920s and early 1930s: the only period in which a strong opposition emerged to challenge network-dominated, advertising-supported media such as radio. Although the opposition failed to secure airwaves for non-profit broadcasters, its critique of the formation and structure of early broadcasting anticipated much of today's most compelling media criticism.
