    as good as it gets

    This book is as good as jonathan Schwartz is on the radio. It is honest and funny and melancholy and beautifully written, just what you'd expect from America's number one music radio voice . It read like a novel and contains the feeling of the supberb radio work that he's been doing for 35 years. It's the best book I've read this year. William Penson

    Honest, excellently written, funny & heartbreaking

    The steady voice of Jonathan Schwartz on AM and FM radio in New York and now on XM Satellite Radio everywhere in the continental USA has provided intelligence on music and almost every other subject since Jonathan's debut in 1958 (on then commercial WBAI). This extraordinary and literate memoir takes us back farther to WKCS, 'The Voice of 94th Street', his teenage broadcasts on an Electronic Baby-Sitter to the family apartment and environs, and earlier to Beverly Hills with his parents Composer Arthur Schwartz ('Dancing in the Dark', 'That's Entertainment') and Actress Katherine Carrington. This is a life worth knowing and 'All in Good Time' provides us Jonathan's unique looks at Frank Sinatra, Carly Simon, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Jackie Robinson, Paris, New York, Boston, Beverly Hills, Radio, Baseball, Paine Whitney, the Betty Ford Center and much more. Not just for fans of Jonathan's radio shows but for anyone who enjoys a well written biography.

    Jonathan Schwartz still graces the airwaves with his passion for music and stories only he can spin with such eloquence. The book takes the spirit of his love of music and tells a story that flows like a well spun vinyl record. The only thing missing after each chapter is a musical interlude that takes the listener of his shows in to a peaceful other world. The reverance for his family represents a special quality that gets lost in our modern world where celebrities scream foul at every turn. There are fewer and fewer radio personalities who represent the quality of good music with a good story. Vin Scelsa of WFUV.FM in New York City comes to mind. What Schwartz does is display his heart on his sleeve and we are all asked to accept that sometimes the music can cure everything, everywhere for everyone. Back in those hey-days of early FM radio in the late 1960s, voices on the radio were many times the voices of reason and purpose for understanding so much in a changing world. The true value of one man's story to be openly shared with a reader is without question a rare treat indeed.
