RADIO'S GOLDEN YEARS: A Visual Guide to the Shows & Stars
Authors: Frank Bresee & Bobb Lynes
This book uses the informational cartoon, a format popularized in Ripley's Believe It or Not. Each of the 254 panels (8.5" by 11") in them book deals with a single show or radio-related topic. There is informative text about each show, and drawings of radio people: actors, producers, directors, writers, announcers, composers and even products. For example, the Gunsmoke panel features pen-and-ink drawings of William Conrad, Georgia Ellis, Parley Baer, Howard McNear, Norman MacDonnell, John Meston, Roy Rowan, Ken Peters, George Walsh, and Rex Koury. Norman Corwin penned the FOREWORD to Radio's Golden Years.
A thoroughly enjoyable book.
This self-published, limited-edition (1,000 copies) softback book, is available from the authors & costs $25.00 (US) postpaid.
