The book is more than 800 pages long, but there's a lot of wasted white space on each page. With better layout it could have been indexed without adding any pages. The appearance of each page is so bleak it makes a telephone directory look exciting by comparison.
In addition, these are not scanned, photographed, or photocopied surveys, either. The text has been either typed or put into a word processor, so all photos and graphics are missing.
The author has included a list of WCFL disc jockeys, with varying amounts of biographical information, generally limited to when that person was on WCFL. There is at least one glaring omission, however: where is Jim Runyon? It was on his morning drivetime show that Chickenman was created, along with Amazon Ace. Then there was his traffic reporter (later his wife) Trooper 36-24-36. She also did all the female voices on Chickenman.
There's a mostly alphabetical list of songs allegedly played by other Chicago stations but not by 'CFL. Two Paul McCartney songs are tacked on at the end of the list, seemingly as an afterthought. This would suggest the list was not created in a database program, where re-alphabetizing the list would be quick and easy.Read more ›
