All of the innovations discussed in this chapter happen, and could only happen effectively, within an understanding of a radio context. The discussion here contends that traditional analyses of broadcasts like War of the Worlds and On a Note of Triumph as sociopolitical events, and conversely, other broadcasts as merely literary documents preserved on tape, have occluded their importance as genuinely innovative radio happenings that define a new species of radio art as occurring only incidentally in sound or the broadcast voice. Instead, this is an art that resides much more prominently in the space between the producer, the institution, and the listener, the space of the radio relationship.

Keywords:   War of the Worlds, broadcast, radio art, radio relationship, listener
