Annotation: The 1920s was a decade of profound social changes. The most obvious signs of change were the rise of a consumer-oriented economy and of mass entertainment, which helped to bring about a "revolution in morals and manners." The radio provided entertainment to families who gathered around to listen to music, sporting events, fictional stories, news and weather, to name a few.
