Abstract

Linda Johnson was one of the founding members of the WDET Radio Program “All Together Now”. Created in the summer of 1971, this was the first radio program in the country that not only served as a forum for women’s issues and ideas from a woman’s perspective, but was also produced and engineered completely and collectively by women. Additionally, the program functioned as a workshop for women interested in learning about radio. The variety of topics discussed on the air dealt with the obvious and subtle problems connected with women’s rights.
