The Death Of Radio



A look back at the death of radio from the perspective of the 21st century, when the machine knows more about us than we know about ourselves.

Here is the story of how radio was taken over by the internet, how robots replaced DJs, how chat shows became automated with artificial celebrities, and how Radio Narcissus began catering for the individual.

Contributors include John Evans of Visual Radio in New York; David Sullivan of the Sunday Sport; Professor Yorick Wilks, inventor of the Converse artifical chat programme; Peter Donaldson; religious broadcaster Francis Gumley-Mason; and Chris Dunkley.
