Our German colleague Helmut Kopetzky recently launched a book called „Radiojahre – Vom linearen Zeitalter in die vernetzte Welt“ (approx. „From the linear age to the network society“) – a personal review of our appreciated radio genre, witnessed from the angle of a feature author over 40 years.
His book exists only in the net so far and can be downloaded free of charge (370 pages, 32 illustrations such as portraits of „Listeners“ by Jan Kopetzky, taken during Prix Europe, and some production sketches of earlier feature works by the author himself).
Another version in print – working title „The author‘s return from the cloud“ – will appear in early 2013, unfortunately all in German.
Helmut wants to express – so in his introduction – „what I would miss, what I don‘t want to loose, what I consider to be valuable enough to be preserved in a multi-medial future“.
He is keen to take part in a lively discussion on the special strength and values of „the best story teller that is“ (Orson Welles on radio as such).
