In October 1998, Sourcebooks published We Interrupt This Broadcast -- a book and CD set by Joe Garner that featured the stories and actual broadcasts of the major news events of the twentieth century. Although audio books had been available before, this new "mixed media" approach presented readers with a vitally different opportunity, and they embraced it. Sourcebooks followed this New York Times bestseller with And The Crowd Goes Wild, a collection of memorable moments in sports history that also mixed text with audio and, like its predecessor, made its way to the New York Times bestseller list. In 2000, Sourcebooks published two more mixed media books: And The Fans Roared, a follow-up to And The Crowd Goes Wild; and The Second City, a 40-year recollection of the theater and people that put Chicago comedy on the map. Sourcebooks also put a name to its growing list of mixed media products: Sourcebooks MediaFusion.Sourcebooks MediaFusion books enhance the traditional book experience by integrating multiple media -- text, audio and visuals -- into one lively package. Sourcebooks MediaFusion books have a unique "campfire" quality that invites participation and makes discussion groups an obvious opportunity.Updated to include the shocking and terrifying events of the past two years, We Interrupt This Broadcast, 2nd Edition brings to life the famous and infamous moments of the twentieth century with memorable audio, vivid photographs and compelling text.
