It takes a lifetime to know a city and its people, and a special talent to paint their portrait. As the city's best-known and best-loved storyteller for decades, Walt Bodine has painted that picture in words with My Times, My Town.
Hundreds of thousands of Kansas Citians have heard his stories in his nearly six decades of local radio and television broadcasts. Now, Walt Bodine has collected those slices of life in this rich anthology of experience.
My Times, My Town taps Walt's schollboy years in the 1920s and 1930s, and evokes the busy streets of his colorful neighborhood. It draws from his earliest years on commercial radio and momentous events he covered as a newsman, and it tells of the memorable people he's interviewed in his long career as a talk-show host.
My Times, My Town collects the memories of Kansas City's premier raconteur. It belongs in the library of anyone who loves Kansas City - or simply loves life!
