Radio broadcasting began to emerge in European countries in the 1920s. Pressures to start radio broadcasting mainly came from the industry and from radio amateurs. Though initially private companies played an important role, the state was the main actor in almost all European countries. State officials and governments aimed to control radio broadcasting in unruly times characterized by deep ideological divides and economic crises. Politically controversial programs were a rare exception in these early years. Despite all differences, the developments in democratic and authoritarian countries were not without similarities.
