Overview

"We'll Have More Music, Right After The News!" is a lighthearted look at the first thirty years of All News Radio in Los Angeles.

Though not a scholarly volume on the philosophy and mechanics of covering news in a major American City, it is a close-up and personal look at how my colleagues and I coped with never ending deadlines, the pressures that come with getting and confirming facts and getting them on the air professionally accurately and as quickly as was possible.

The book looks at the humor of a radio newsroom. Not situation comedy humor as in the TV series "NewsRadio" but the real thing, unexpected and unrehearsed. It becomes the fly on the wall in a room filled with highly educated and highly motivated journalists as they write and report on critical news of the day while maintaining their emotional balance through laughter. You will read of the way tensions in and out of the newsroom were dealt with and you will experience the silliness of a never-ending supply of bloopers. Most of all, you will meet a marvelous group of people who evolved from a staff of talented strangers into a smoothly operating close-knit family.

Its a great look inside a great radio station and its funny as all get out. I loved it. Its about real people and the humor they manage to maintain while covering very serious stories.
