Meanwhile, an amount of $3.47 million was proposed for development of software under PRRP
. 'The sponsors may clarify as to why internal resources are not being used to develop the software under the proposed project, as all software under TRAP were developed through internal resources and the amount proposed for software development was saved through downward revision of TARP project.'
First, we trace the formation of the Princeton Radio Research Project, with a focus on Cantril's fraught recruitment of Lazarsfeld as PRRP director.
In a mid-November memo to Cantril with the playful "From: Orson Welles, Director of Publications, PRRP" heading, Lazarsfeld (1938e) admitted that he was "much worried about the fact that the prolongation of the project will come up with Marshall and the Foundation at a time when no major initiative of the project will be finished."
In that sense, IFM--along with the PRRP's other book-length publication from the period, Radio and the Printed Page (Pooley, 2006a, pp.
Paul Felix Lazarsfeld Papers (Box 26, Folder "PRRP 10").
PRRP = Total $ value of Puerto Rico's exports for the year X */Total $ value of world exports for the year X
If the PRIR is higher that the PRRP, the industry is considered competitive at the international level for that year and is included in the cluster chart.
Although the number of competitive industries measured by its PRIR was lower in 2001 and 2002, Puerto Rico's rate of participation in total world exports (PRRP) was higher for those years.
Although its PRIR does not surpass the PRRP by one, this is an emergent industry on the Island.
Given the PRRP aegis, I expected Current of Music to be an exercise comparable to Adorno's pages in The Authoritarian Personality: empirical numbers-crunching premised on the reduction of qualitative issues to quantifiable data, a labor Adorno undertook as the price of his ticket in America.
Hullot-Kentor rightly judges that the "Radio Physiognomics" is "by far the most interesting and the best written" of Adorno's PRRP writings, and "remains the source" for Adorno's later thinking on radio and media (58, my translation).
Adorno was grateful to find a position on Paul Lazarsfeld's PRRP, but as head of the "music section," he fretted over "the regression of listening" while crunching numbers meant to persuade potential advertisers of radio's marketing efficacy.
