War of the Worlds 1. What skills are involved in being a radio listener? In other words, how is ‘reading’ or interpreting the radio program different from ‘reading’ a television program?” Discuss the differences. I believe some of the skills that are required to be a good and respectful radio listener are keeping an open mind, asking questions and being aware of your emotions. I think people need to keep an open mind to what the radio host has to say, ask questions in order to make sure that they completely understand what is being stated, and being aware of their emotions in order to not allow it to become an obstacle in understanding the information that is being conveyed. ‘Reading’ or interpreting the radio program can be different than reading a television program because they can hear something out of context. For example, if someone tunes in on the radio at a specific moment they can potentially misinterpret the information that is being spoken because they didn’t hear the entire explanations. I believe television programs are more clear than radio programs since not only do they have the spoken words but they also have the visual representation to accompany the words to make the meaning they are trying to convey more clear. 2.
