Abstract: Radio observations, which have not been a traditional part of the study of supernovae, have shown that some supernovae are powerful emitters which increase rapidly in radio brightness to luminosities which are hundreds to thousands of times brighter than even the brightest known supernova remnant, Cas A, and then fade over a period of weeks, months, or years. These RSNe have been found to provide important information about the nature of the progenitor stars, their mass loss rates, and the circumstellar material surrounding them.
