Kisseloff, Jeff. The box:an oral history of television, 1920-1961. Penguin Books, 1997.
Guaranteed to keep you up long after prime time, "The Box" re-creates the old-time TV years through more than three hundred interviews with those who invented, manufactured, advertised, produced, directed, wrote, and acted in them. Their reminiscences are intertwined with a chronological narrative that tells the technological, business, and entertainment stories--from pioneer Philo T. Farnsworth, through the Golden Age of comedy and drama, to FCC chairman Newt Minow's historic speech declaring television a "vast wasteland."
