Radio broadcasting in rural areas during the second half of the 1940s – the first half of the 1950s (based on the materials of Sumy region)

The article is devoted to the analysis of the characteristic features and peculiarities of rural radiofication and the functioning of radio broadcasting in rural areas of Sumy Oblast during the first post-war decade (1945-1955). The circumstances of the spread of the radio network in the Sumy region are highlighted. It was revealed that the radiofication of rural areas was carried out lagging behind the similar process in cities and became comprehensive only in the first half of the 1950s. To a large extent, it was carried out by the collective farms themselves, whose radio nodes became part of the general radio broadcasting network. The regional broadcast was largely aimed at a rural audience, and the programs were dominated by speeches and stories on agricultural topics. The obsolescence and technical imperfection of the equipment, as well as the lack and insufficient qualification of personnel, negatively affected the efficiency of the regional radio. The research is based on materials from the State Archive of Sumy Region and information from the regional newspaper issued during the 2nd half of the 1940s — the 1st half of the 1950s.
