Radio used to be an ephemeral medium - possibly saved as a recording, but perhaps only in the hands of a private collector. Thanks to the Internet, it has become easy to find a transcript or recording of a show. National Public Radio (now NPR) in particular offers both, sometimes for free. NPR has done many interviews and shows relating to comics and cartoons especially since the 1990s and this bibliography is a listing of them. For a short time, NPR even produced and aired a radio show based on a comic strip - Ben Katchor's "Julius Knipl, Real Estate Photographer", starring Jerry Stiller as Julius. Other public radio stations are included as well, as is Public Radio International (PRI), and Voice of America (VOA) in a separate chapter at the end. Since VOA stories are public domain, some of them have been reproduced in full, a decision made at the time they were acquired, and since this is an ebook, I see no reason to delete them now. Two other chapters capture all the stories of the Danish Islamic cartoons controversy run on NPR and VOA.
