Colwell’s memoir provides the distinctive perspective of a rock personality. . . . When he puts himself into the story, as when he discusses the introductions he used to do for Bruce Springsteen at live shows or his time at D.C. radio station WHFS 102.3, the narrative comes alive.” --Publishers Weekly
"Like his voice, Cerphe’s book, written with Stephen Moore, is smooth and inviting." --John Kelly, Washington Post
Somewhere in the 1960s, someone said Let’s put some rock and roll music on FM.’ So there weren’t that many people listening, so not much pressure. The FM stations became very creative. You could play what you wanted and you could create an art form out of your own broadcast. Cerphe was involved in this.” Frank Zappa
I've been a fan of Cerphe for decades, as a friend and a musician. He's always searched for and shared great music with his radio listeners. I always appreciated Cerphe’s sharing my own music, too. I've enjoyed many colorful discussions with Cerphe through the years about the wonders of all types of inspired music, and believe we share a common belief that music is truly our planet's sacred weapon. I recommend his book to all music fans.” --Nils Lofgren, solo musician, member of the Rock Hall of Fame with the E Street Band
