A product of the radio years himself -- as a boy he did his homework to the sound of the Lone Ranger and Jack Benny -- Nachman combines his own memories with those of scores of performers, writers, directors, sound-effects men, announcers, musicians, and other radio survivors. The result is a wonderfully readable and informative book that celebrates an extraordinary American cultural phenomenon.
