Radio Recall

Radio Pro takes you behind the mic with super ‘Morning Man” Joe Martelle. This inside look at broadcasting is a must read for anyone with aspirations for a career in radio…A fascinating, fun book. I loved it, and I’m sure that all radio fans and everyone who reads it will too.”

Harry Harrison, broadcaster, WCBS-FM, New York

Radio Pro takes you behind the microphone and behind the scenes by telling twisted tales of how rock ’n’ roll and radio grew up together. It’s not all pretty, but it is all real. But above all, Radio Pro is a love story, one that shines a light on a generation of men and women who made their dreams come true when they discovered themselves on the radio.”

Bob Shannon, author of Turn It Up! American Radio Tales, 1946–1996

Radio Pro includes many things that new people on their way up in radio should know but probably don’t.”
