Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Larry Munson knew exactly what he wanted to do. As soon he received his $200 "muster-out money" after the end of World War II, he enrolled in radio broadcasting school. Sixty-two years later, this feisty octogenarian was still busy at work, announcing University of Georgia football games. Finally, less than a week before his 86th birthday, "the Voice of the Bulldogs" retired. This memoir recaps an unforgettable career.
