Great Speeches Of The 20th Century, Volume 1

The Political Arena

Title Details

Audio Original


Before radio, the only way a candidate could get his message across to the voters was by criss-crossing the country and speaking directly to the people. The events were usually covered by the local newspapers, but there was no such thing as a paid political broadcast, no convenient way to get the significance out to 40 or 50 million people in one evening. Almost as soon as the ability to record the human voice for posterity was developed, recordings were recognized as a great political tool. Presidential candidates and other political figures jumped on the bandwagon and soon speeches were available to anyone with 75 cents to pay for them.
