Review:

...excellent introduction...highly recommended for purchase by most general libraries. Libraries that have patrons with an interest in nostalgia radio will find this work a delight to read. (American Reference Books Annual)

...a monumental directory, containing the wondrous parts of radio programs that permeated the air waves for a thirty year period. The contents are so arresting that you might find yourself reaching to turn down the volume on the ancient cathedral syle Philco. (On The Air)

If you collect recollections and want a complete reference book on what and who wafted over the air, then this tome is your tonic...deserve[s] a raised sign that says "Applause". Good work, lads. (Entertainment Today)
