Telecommunications Issues, 1979

Check this discussion of the need for a new communications act promoting competition, deregulation, and consumer choice. It features Tom Wheeler and Barry Goldwater and it took place in 1979. Wheeler is one with the Hollywood moustache. Here’s the C-Span blurb:

A panel of congressional policy leaders in communication convened to discuss issues in telecommunication including satellite and cable television regulation. A panel of communication reporters listened from Atlanta and asked questions via a telephone link. Tom Wheeler moderated the panel.

Very hip, very disco, very prescient.
