Radio Production Reviews


"The fifth edition of Radio Production contains the wealth of ideas and practical examples that the book has always offered. Readers who have seen each edition will recognise some of the material from the earliest days but much in this edition is new and fresh...this book remains the essential manual for all radio trainers and a valuable reference for producers of all levels of experience." - International Communication Training Institute newsletter

'There are other practical textbooks on the market, but none which combines instruction in the how and why of local broadcasting quite as effectively.'
Broadcast Magazine

'Great for students and professionals. Keep it by your mixing desk... you can't go wrong with McLeish.'
