Fear In the Static
Fear in the Static: Preparation and Panic on the WWII Home Front
Even before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, local authorities and broadcasters were taking steps to be ready should war come to the Pacific Northwest.

Media historian Feliks Banel uses vintage audio and film clips to take us back to those uncertain times on the World War II home front.
