Abstract: This paper has two concerns: What did the people in Taiwan learn from the radio broadcasting in the 1950s? What forms were used by the Kuomintang government to disseminate its policies to the public by way of controlled radio broadcasting? In this paper I begin my study, in the view of quasi war-time system, on the broadcasting environment and the condition of radio broadcasting in three wartime systems: the general mobilization in Japanese colonial era, China during the war of resistance against Japan, and Taiwan under the National Mobilization for Suppression of the Communist Rebellion. Then, by taking a perspective different from traditional approach to radio broadcasting policy, I analyze the contents of broadcasts introduced in the Radio Broadcasting Magazine. I would argue that the characteristic of the radio programs changed from compelling propaganda to soft presentation of daily life. In other words, the Kuomintang gradually got out of the crisis in 1949 and learned how to construct friendly media to disseminate anticommunist ideology through selected information. The change of broadcasts shows that the Kuomintang was able to penetrate the daily life of Taiwan people. The experiences in the 1950s laid the foundation for strict control in the 1960s.
