This chapter explores Latouche’s extensive work in radio during the war years, including notable efforts on behalf of the Allied cause. He began his association with radio writing experimental radio dramas for The Listener’s Playhouse. He subsequently began to write radio shows covering such war-related topics as Russian and Chinese relief. Other shows concerned the principles for which the war was being waged—a topic that also informed continuing work with Earl Robinson. His involvement with radio left its mark on his other work.
