University of Chicago Press

This chapter concludes the book by elaborating on the sense of obligation informing Gogo Breeze's work. It draws attention to the specific combination of radio’s technological affordances and Gogo Breeze’s insistence on kinship as his preferred register of address. A perspective on the moral aspects of speaking and listening also challenges common assumptions in the literature about the corroding effects of the market on mass media. The final section restates multivocal morality as this book’s perspective on the value of free speech. It returns to the difference between Gogo Breeze’s practice of free speech and parrhȇsia.

Keywords:   radio, kinship, affordances, obligation, market, mass media, free speech, multivocal morality, parrhȇsia
