The myth is that nobody understood McLuhan in the 60s and by the 90s he was more than obvious, even obsolete.

How did you fare with his ideas as a student in '67-68?

Was the "radio analogy" very helpful in grasping Pound?

Incidentally, the radio analogy was made earlier in an academic article on "The Waste Land" by Delmore Schwartz in 1945. ("T.S. Eliot as International Hero").
