Broadcast's High Standard
Broadcast's High Standard.
Even at this distance from the Old Country, and without (as yet) having the advantage of hearing the broadcasts, anyone who reads the reprints of them must be impressed with the excellence of the matter. Judged by their writing, speakers of first-class authority are conveying to millions of hearers an education hardly available even to an intensive reader of the magazine press. No magazine has proved itself to be editorially capable (or shall one say financially capable?) of producing so excellent and diversified an output of the thought of men of talent. From the racy outlines of events as told in the news columns of the daily press people can now turn to the broadcast for the real explanation—the fundamentals. It seems to be a triumph (so far, at any rate) of what may be called broadcast editorship. In other hands the thing could have been bungled.
