Pure Fun and a Terrific Read and Listen
This is one book I have anticipated for a long time. As an advisory, in the 1990s, I authored a book about WLS deejays so am familiar with some of the people and stories ¿ but Clark Weber has gone above and beyond with his memories of radio. The pictures are terrific ¿ the Supremes, Beatles, Monkees, Dick Clark, broadcast studio shots, music surveys . . . they¿re all here. Weber is a good storyteller, often giving you the details of an anecdote before telling you who it is about. Most of the time it is a behind the scenes glance at someone famous whose path he crossed. An added bonus to this book is a nearly 30 minute CD, narrated by Mother Weber¿s Oldest Son himself, featuring jingles and airchecks from a number of deejays (along with a classic ¿Animal Stories¿ tale with Uncle Lar and Little Snot Nosed Tommy). Fans of the radio heydays of the Sixties (especially Chicago radio) who spent time glued to their transistors, will love this book and rip through it in one sitting like I did.Was this review helpful?
