Morten Michelsen focusses on a grand scale of radio exchanges, the IBU's European Concerts: a series of pan-European interconnected broadcasts in the 1930s, staged as a celebration of the new medium's power to connect, but also to project individual nations into a European radio space. He analyzes the role of the music programming within these major productions, showing how these choices reflected the tensions between projections of universal European modernity and nation-states as having unique character.
