Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0741470306, Paperback)

In the dawn of Rock & Roll Radio, a DJ's job was fun, exciting and glamorous. Or was it? LinDee Rochelle leads you down Memory Lane with DJs' behind-the-microphone true tales of music and mayhem in the late Fifties.

Did you really wear bobby sox and white pleated skirts? How about rolling your cigs up in the sleeve of your T-shirt, guys? Or are you just fascinated by the good ol' days Grandma and Grandpa speak fondly of?

Blast from Your Past! entertains with as much swivel as Elvis' hips. Don your dungarees as Rochelle weaves history, fads, and fashions of the era with lively DJs' stories from coast-to-coast.

Who was your fave Rock & Roll Radio DJ in the late 1950s when the music and the world were changing? Cousin Brucie Morrow in New York? Ron Riley in Chicago? How about Frosty Mitchell in Des Moines, or William F. Willams in Los Angeles? Dedicated to Wolfman Jack--who was Robert Weston Smith before he became the wild-n-crazy Wolfman? Find out in Blast from Your Past!

Redefine your image of the Rock & Roll DJ and rediscover your youth. Enjoy the moment ... again!
