Delight in the Golden Age of Radio...
A nine-year old boy laughs and shivers under the covers as funnymen and murderers stream into his bedroom at night. A passion ignites in him to fly on the air, too. He performs for his parents over the kitchen Zenith from a basement microphone. In high school when he could be dating girls, he visits radio stations. At age twenty, his path to becoming a broadcaster is challenged by family loss and missed opportunities.
Readers who grew up with Dave will relive the era when mysteries and comedy shows filled the living room from the radio in the four-legged cabinet. Radio aficionados and nostalgia buffs of all ages will delight in Dave's abundant recollections of the waning Golden Age of Radio and the beginning of Rock 'n' Roll. Those working on the air today and students who want to be will learn how one young man fulfilled his dream to be on the radio in a time of platters, turntables and round-faced clocks.
Perseverance is a must to make it in radio. What Dave did is amazing. His journey is a thoroughly enjoyable read for broadcasters and listeners alike.
