Overview

Joey Reynolds is one of America's most beloved radio personalities. Spinning records as a teenager in Buffalo, Joey quickly became one of the trendsetters of early rock radio.

    Great book and as FUNNY and INTERESTING as Joey IS

    Joey Reynolds is my favorite radio talk show host, with his stream-of-consciousness and no nonsense style! He can shoot the bull without all the BS. He puts his soul where his mouth is about his Life and his sobriety. And he lives the sobriety in real life. He walks the walk and talks the talk. This book makes me want to know more. He is a perfect example of a person who is recovering/recovered. Sober people are the most down-to-earth and grounded people I know. And Joey, is I am proud to say One of the Best ones I know!

    From acid to antacid with Joey Reynolds!

    Now that I know more about his background, in fact, more than I cared to know, I realize why Joey Reynolds is always speaking about drugs. For someone who has reformed, it seems he is always thinking about it! That is the only thing that really bugs me about his program. He's obsessed with drugs and alcohol. The story is too short and not enough details, but okay to whet your appetite for the next book, I guess.
