Summary/Abstract: Radiophonia was poorly developed in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia compared to other European states of that time.When Milan Stojadinovic came to power in 1935. its status was changed to a certain degree. Stojadinovic felt the importance and prospective of radio, very modern media then. During his rule he inspired radiophonia development and coordinated it in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. He increased investments into this sector as well as radio-wave broadcast range. Regime of Stojadinovic made a certain progress in the area of radiophonia, which was closely connected to local propaganda efforts and propaganda efforts targeted to Diaspora. Establishing and building of short-wave radio station and its operationalisation was an important step forward, but its influence was limited as a result of general situation in the country. In spite of all efforts, radiophonia in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia remained at the bottom of European scale in respect of listening in and accessibility.
