But the broadcasting dream remained an unsettled calling. A fortuitous introduction to the program director of WSM radio in Nashville led to various apprenticeship duties. For ten years I lived on Woody Allen's advice that eighty percent of success in show business is simply showing up. It worked! Eventually, I persuaded station radio officials to let me host its first call-in talk show in 1969.
A year later I assumed the host role of Nashville television's most prestigious television program, "The Noon Show." Then three years later, WSM radio named me host of it's popular "Waking Crew." Both programs were Mid-South traditions. Eleven years later, Nashville's ABC network affiliate made me an offer I should have refused as its prime time news anchor.
I soon found that telling "what" as a news anchor was not as fulfilling to me as asking "why" as an interviewer. So I returned to my first love--talk radio--and introduced "Teddy Bart's Round Table" to the airwaves on both radio and television. It aired for over twenty years. I am extremely proud to have been voted Nashville's Best Talk Show Host five years running. In 2003, my peers in the Nashville Broadcaster's Association honored me with their Lifetime Achievement award.
Driven by my lifelong fascination and curiosity for the spiritual, paranormal and metaphysical, I launched a talk show called "Beyond Reason" in 1987. Today "Beyond Reason" is heard as a web cast through www.beyondreason.com.
Throughout the broadcast journey, writing has ridden side-car, always beckoning me to follow its path as well. Traveling down the road, writing became as much a friend as broadcasting. My first published book was "Inside Music City USA," followed by "The Mensh," a work of fiction.
By 2009 writing became a dominant aspect of my working life. "A Particle of God", a metaphysical novel about a disgruntled talk show host who believed he should have become a star, was published. in 2011 I published "Shadow Seduction" a novel that asks: Why do decent people do shameful things? In 2012 I published an ebook titled "The Hooligan" a book about political intrigue with a supernatural twist.
Since 2011 I have written a weekly blog for artists. It can be accessed at www.talentsurvivalguide.com.
When not writing a book or blog, I spend my down time reading or walking the land of the farm where my wife, Jana, and I live in Coffee County, Tennessee.

It is a compelling story, well told, that flows better than most fiction, but has so much truth within it. How often can we say we've read a book that is both entertaining and educational? Though it was not written as a self-help book, as I read and enjoyed the story line, I learned a lot about myself and my "shadow". It is good to finally understand why some of my life's "adventures", both good and not so good, occurred and how I made the choices that led to the path to those events. I know you will, too.
I encourage you to read this book and take Jonathan Feldman's (Teddy Bart's main character in this book) mantra to heart: "When its not about you, you learn what you're about".
I wish there were 6 stars or more for the rating instead of the maximum 5.
