it was amazing
Read in February, 2012 — I own a copy

What an awesome book! I purchased it at a local library's weekly book sale, mostly because my dad has a copy of it and I recognized it, and it was only $1. I had always thought it was just a non-fiction book about radio, but it turned out to be a narrative memoir about Jane Woodfin and her experience working in radio during the Great Depression. The writing is great, it's really funny, and I learned a lot about early radio and what it was like working during the Great Depression. (There was also a lot in here about prohibition, which was also really interesting!) It was a neat find and a great read.

Brian Well, this has quite a few of the things Brian likes. Sounds very interesting.

Dicky Neely I read this when I was a boy. I loved it. It sparked an interest in radio which persisted until recent years. It's too bad modern radio is in a sorry state and this book illustrates how fresh and good radio once was.
