Funny, interesting, and true!
Dana
It was fun to remember some of the crazy times while I was there, and equally as fun to learn about things that happened before I was there and after I'd left.
Kenneth Smith
Some great interviews and quotes.

This was literally a trip down the memory lane for someone who grew up listening to Q101 in the 90s. I felt like I was sitting around these dudes near a bonfire and talking about the good old days. Thanks JVO for the book, and introducing me to the local scene.

Great book! Brought back a ton of memories. Cool reading about how things went down from the people that were there. Book arrived within a week of ordering.

As a fan of Q101 and the personalities I enjoyed reading about behind the scenes stories. Thank you James VanOsdol!

Q101 was an alternative radio station from 1992 to its unfortunate demise in July 2011. This station was a big part of my childhood and reading the history of an iconic station brought back some great memories as well as the station's hard times.

The insight from all those involved with Q101 is an incredible read. James van Osdol not only brings a lot of clarity to what the subject says, but shows the raw emotion of what he or she felt in that time period. Very compelling.

"We Appreciate Your Enthusiasm" also gives us a timeline of the stations big success stories (Jamboree, Local 101, Mancow's Morning Madhouse) and its darkest hours (Morning Fix, 94.7 the Zone battlefield, Q101 VS Jack White).

There is one story I'm suprised that didn't get any mention in the book. That was the whole Q101/Mancow VS Fred Durst controversy in 2003. Let's just say Fred Durst was not the most liked person in town that year...

A fasicating and well-written history of a Chicago radio station that was dear to many that grew up in the 1990s and 2000s.

I grew up in the late 90's early 00's listening to Q101. I was very upset when I heard Q101 was being reformatted, but I was equally excited to hear that JVO was writing this book. The interviews were masterfully organized and written by JVO and it makes for a great read... and a trip down memory lane for those who loved Q101.

The interview/documentary format of this book makes it an easy read and impossible to put down.

The story itself is priceless and anyone who ever tuned in or worked to make Q101 what it was will feel at home in the many stories told in this book.

Format: Paperback
I grew up listening to Q101, so it was very literally the soundtrack to a significant chunk of my life. Unfortunately, much of that comprised of a love/hate relationship with the station.

The book James VanOsdol as assembled fills in many of the missing pieces of the puzzle I had as a curious listener, all while being an informative, entertaining, sometimes maddening look at the rise of fall of Q101. Being familiar enough with most of the on-air personalities, I hear their voices while reading stories of the behind-the-scenes antics from the individuals that worked and lived through it all.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in the history of this once great Chicago alternative station.
