Most Helpful Customer Reviews
'Music in Ohio' is fascinating reading, crammed full of facts, history, & quirky 'real' people in Ohio's musical history. It is a book to pick up and browse through (I actually ended up reading it back to front!) And I know I drove my family crazy with my constant 'listen to this,' 'did you know,' & 'guess what!' Of course, the fact that I am a music teacher from Ohio probably adds to the appeal of this book for me.
