*Virtual Radio Ga Ga (Youths & Net-Radio)** (Andrea Baker): *This book is
the first comprehensive study of the radio and music industries in the
internet age. It case studies major cultural music cities such as Melbourne
and New York City who are at the forefront of new and cutting-edge
technology initiatives associated with radio and music. Primarily based on
a transnational study of college students’ net-radio consumption practices,
*Virtual Radio Ga Ga *uncovers two types of audiences (radio online or
net-only radio audiences) and a three-tiered net-radio subculture
(conservatives, swingers, and radicals), which is determined by users’
taste distinctions and how much power they have over their net-radio
consumption and production practices. It contends that net-radio; its
synergy with radio and music journalism and youth subcultures is not a
trivial flash in the pan, but an important and ongoing social-cultural and
global phenomenon. In doing so the book contributes to cultural studies
research on the Internet.

reinvention of itself that will be of tremendous historical value in
decades to come” *(Assistant Professor, Martin Spinelli, Department of

for which *Virtual Radio Ga Ga* provides an excellent template” *(Chris
