I grew up in Boston, first listening to radio, then working in Radio & TV in the Boston until the early 1970's. The period of history I remember most were well covered, mid-50's to mid 70's. If you are are a radio historian, or you grew up listening to Boston Radio you will enjoy this book.

This is a delightful trip back to the Golden Era of Boston Radio. The book is well researched and augmented with lots of photos
of old time favorites.Being a history buff, I particularly enjoyed reading how stations got their names and the identity of the pioneers of Boston Radio.
The cover sets the tone with DJ favorite of the airwaves and sock hops Arnie Woo-Woo Ginsburg depicted with his sound equipment/noise makers.
The author, Donna Halper deserves a lot of praise and thanks for putting together this wonderful history of Boston Radio. Well written and illustrated- don't miss this one,
especially if you lived in the Boston area during this era.

Format: Paperback
I would have given this five stars for all the great pictures and tons of radio trivia, but it has no index which is real frustrating with all the different names in this book. It is presented chronologically, so at least you can get a rough idea where to look if you know the right era. It's always a bit of a surprise to see the face that goes along with a familiar radio voice, and there were some in here I've seen for the first time. No mention of Grahm Junior College, which put a lot of people in Boston radio.
