John Cheever’s "The Enormous Radio" represents the enormous amount of hidden truths in American society of the 1940s. The problems with society during this time were hidden behind a facade of goodness; however, this false innocence becomes visible through the radio owned by the Westcotts. The radio causes the Westcotts to evolve from an innocent, naive pair who believe that everything they see is real, into individuals who realize that appearances are deceiving.

The acquisition would allow Radio One to acquire stations in the top 50 African-American markets. Radio One has always produced broadcasts that target that group, which is the largest minority group in America.

The minority group has also experiencing 150% faster income growth between 1980 and 1995. African-Americans listen to the radio on average 24% longer than the general population. That information is favorable to the acquisition decision, as the new markets should experience an increase in advertising revenue. One concern is that
Opponents of the reallocation, mainly broadcasters argued that wireless carriers were not using the spectrum efficiently and they had alternatives to increase the capacity of the spectrum without reallocation. Gordon H Smith (President of The National Association of Broadcasters(NAB)) said that more investment in towers and infrastructure and receiving standards could maximize the large range of spectrum already allocated to them. They also did a study and released its findings that the FCC did not take into account all the various ways that wireless carriers could increase the capacity of the spectrum they already allocated. They pointed that increase use of femtocells, improved receiver standards and spectrum sharing will do the purpose. They were also concerned about the fact that the FCC could simply not renew the licenses for the broadcaster`s spectrum and they may just reallocate the spectrum for wireless broadband carriers. They were also concerned if they sue FCC, but the result may come only after a long time. Eventhough the spectrum offering by the broadcaster is voluntary, they think it may not the case in reality.
