    an excellent book

    Something In The Air is the best book I've read all year. Its compelling stories and elegant narrative blend to form a book everyone should read. Fisher takes the audience from the Golden Age of radio to today, telling stories of deejays like Cousin Brucie and all-night storytellers like Jean Shepherd. Written with particular excellence is the story of the book Shepherd and listeners praised despite the fact that it did not actually exist.

    A riveting story about what radio meant to us and why today's media is so lacking

    In my hometown of Chicago, the big Top 40 DJ was Larry Lujack and every kid imitated him. Every city had somebody like that on the radio, and this book is the first one that explains what that attraction was all about and why our popular culture has lost that sense of everyone being together. Great characters from all around the country in this book, including Jean Shepherd, Bob Fass, Tom Donahue and more. But most importantly, this is a book that explains what happens to old media when a new technology takes over.
