Customer Reviews

It's a fun read with lots of entertaining tales and memories.
Carrie Grosvenor
Having grown up during the 60's and 70's I could definitely relate to many of Joe's radio stories from his early days starting in broadcasting.
Ed Phillips
A wonderful story about someone who was inspired at such a young age.

Joe Cipriano's voice comes through loud and clear in this memoir, which is much more than just an autobiography. Along with a great, engaging story about a boy who loved AM radio and grew up to become a very successful DJ and voice over actor, readers will enjoy learning about the highs and lows in this type of work.

If you're looking to break into voice over or radio work, you'll find loads of tips and really useful advice here. The tips are deftly woven into the story, making it feel more like advice from a good friend than an instruction manual. You'll learn what it takes to get into radio, and how to keep your focus when the going gets tough.

If you love celebrity stories, there are all kinds of fun ones in Living On Air. If you enjoy stories about family life and coming of age, this book is perfect for you. If you simply like to read interesting and well-written biographies, well, you get the picture. Living On Air truly offers something for everyone.

Overall, this is an upbeat and positive tale about a man who persevered and made it big in a little-known genre of acting, and has decided to not only share his experiences, but give something back to his community. It's a fun read with lots of entertaining tales and memories.

Joe and Ann Cipriano have created an inspiring, poignant, funny and entertaining masterpiece! The wonderful collection of stories gives the reader an intimate look at the power of Joe's amazing spirit and will to succeed no matter what. Starting from Joe's early years in radio, meeting Ann, living their dreams together with all the ups and downs life can bring, is a universal theme that you don't need to be in the voice over business to relate to it! Joe and Ann give back to so many in so many different ways and this book is just another example of their kindness and generosity! A MUST READ!!!

Joe's passion for the field of broadcasting shines through in his book. He takes you through the highs and lows of his career and does so with such positivity. If you have ever thought about breaking into the world of radio and VOs or are new to the field or even a vet, this book will entertain, inspire and motivate you to be the best that you can be - on a daily basis.

I also started my radio career at a very early age (14) and loved reading about Joe's journey.

He had me hooked from the moment he talked about the first time he walked into a radio station to meet one of his radio idols and get a tour of the radio station. It took me back to my first visit to a radio station in Bangor, Maine and reminded me of the 'electricity' that I felt in that building and knowing that it was something that I definitely wanted to be a part of.

You will not want to put this book down - I know I didn't.

Plus, with the Kindle version, you'll get access to links of some of Joe's air checks, vo demo reels and more.

This is a book with a lot of heart. Don't pass this one up.

Joe Cip is a man after my own heart. We both do voiceover work and we both write. It is encouraging to anyone in the VO business to read Joe's story. You'll find out in this book that you have probably heard a lot from Joe Cipriano and just didn't know it. He's been all over television and radio. Living On Air is a great read about a guy that has talked his way to stardom.

This is a GREAT book! Having grown up during the 60's and 70's I could definitely relate to many of Joe's radio stories from his early days starting in broadcasting. I saw Joe do a live presentation of a few chapters of "Living On Air" in 2014 and that's what prompted me to get the book. I'm glad I did!

The book gave only a few insights to "living on air", as it's geared more towards the voice-over field, making the title a bit misleading. Also some of the language used--wouldn't necessarily want my kids getting ahold of this book.
