I'm beginning to think radio of the 70's and 80's, being a faceless format, did a disservice to people of color, because even now I'm discovering songs I like were written and sung by PoC and I had no idea.
And I think this is why promoting awareness in our media today... highlighting that these writers, illustrators, producers, etc... are not-white is a good thing. We see performers, but we don't see all the people behind the scenes and it's easy to assume they're all white.

Hello! I'm a grad student working on a history of radio automation / treating radio art as a field for precedents we might use in contesting automated media today. I really like the bent of this instance and am going to try posting my more research-/practice-related stuff here alongside a more personal account over at @andy.
Some interests: radio, sound art, Pure Data, plain-text writing workflows, pedagogy, DnD, biking, cooking
I really enjoyed this short podcast episode about the history and influence of Terry Riley's "In C," newly added to the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress https://the1a.org/segments/the-sounds-of-america-terry-riley-in-c/
