Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073884148X, Paperback)Lies, intrigue, illicit affairs, kidnapping, snitches, and drug abuse. Sound like the stuff of a daytime TV soap opera? No, just a typical day at one of the radio stations where Jack James has worked. This major market program director's matter-of-fact, often cynical and mostly hilarious deadpan diary entries give readers a glimpse of what really goes on behind the scenes of an everyday radio station. There's the promotions director who uses her station's Web page to conduct an anonymous hate campaign against the new morning guy. The night DJ who can't pull his shift because some of his teeth have been knocked out in a drug deal. The popular host who confesses he's only been sober one day during the last year. The board operator who decides to hijack the airwaves and do his own talk show. And the woman with Tourette's Syndrome, who disrupts a remote broadcast from a bank. As the author notes, "Could I make this stuff up?" The PD Chronicles is must reading for anyone who has ever listened to the radio, works in radio, or is thinking about getting into radio.
