Editorial Reviews

MarcusGrimm.com
Corey Deitz has enjoyed one of the more interesting professions out there: the life of a radio disc jockey, and his excellent retelling of these adventures is available in his memoir, The Ca$h Cage.

Readers can expect to find what happens when one dedicates themselves to this odd industry: a career that only begins with several stops on the bottom rung on the ladder, where the pay is miniscule (or nonexistent), the job security is nil, and traveling half-way across the country for a new job is the only way to get anywhere.

Deitz is a natural story-teller, and though I haven't ever heard him on the radio, I have a hunch those who have will particularly enjoy his accounts - many of which include events shared with his listeners over the years.

Kudos should go to Deitz, though, for writing an extremely crisp self-published book.

As it is, it's a wonderful, hilarious account of the weird world of radio and an example of a first-rate self-published memoir.

The Midwest Book Review
Corey Deitz drew upon his more than 25-year career as a radio host veteran in such major markets as Chicago, St. Louis, Cleveland, and others, to write a candidly informative expose of what happens "back stage" in the world of talk radio. A first-person view of the ups, downs, backstabbing, money-jockeying, desertions, loneliness and more in an often cutthroat business world, The Cash Cage is not only an engrossing personal story, but also a no-holds-barred "how-to" guide for anyone struggling to break into the business, curious individuals seeking to learn the pitfalls of the trade, and in fact anyone determined to grapple with adversity. Vernacular plain-terms language distinguishes this highly readable account that actively resists being put down for any reason.

    'The Cash Cage' is a wild ride

    It seems that most of us spend a little time listening to the radio everyday. And most radio shows are usually 4 hours long. So did you ever wonder what life was like ¿the other 20 hours¿ in the life of that person behind the microphone ? ¿The Cash Cage¿ by Corey Deitz brings his story to life in a true autobiography that not only focuses behind the scenes at average radio stations around the country, but behind the scenes in his personal life and how his dream often became a nightmare for his wife and two boys. If you're in the business of broadcasting this story will bring back memories of your own career. The good days, the bad days, and the countless times you made up your mind to get out and never acted on it because of the same passions that the author has. If you're not in radio, it's a wild ride that takes you through many places and many stations across the country and leave you wondering why anyone would do that to their lives. ¿The Cash Cage¿ even scared me....... and I'm in the business too. Jay Hamilton - Veteran Radio Personality
