    I was disappointed in Radio Sound effects, as the subtitle Who Did It, and How, in the Era of Live Broadcasting is a bit misleading.While it is an interesting and even somewhat intriguing read if you are into the comings and goings and mishaps of radio s most often heard non actors, it does little to document the methods that they had to resort to to create the sound effects.There is a story here and there about the creation of effects, but most of the emphasis is on what went wrong or who had drinks with who, and who got fired afterwards.While a readable social narrative, the book just doesn t come up to snuff in the technique and method area.
