Radio Signals

Record #:
Part 9 of the Story of Charlotte series, \"Radio Signals,\" describes Charlotte during the Roaring '20s and the Great Depression. A thriving town during the 1920s, the Great Depression hit Charlotte hard, but WBT radio emerged as the primary form of entertainment in the city and eventually throughout the South. On the eve of World War II, the city slowly pulled out of the depression with help from WPA programs and by 1940 boasted 100,000 residents.
