Bill Owen takes the reader on a wonderful 60-year plus trip through the world of broadcasting,
introducing us to the famous and not-so-famous that he met and worked with along the way.
A must-read for fans of old-time radio and television, Bill takes us behind the scenes
to revisit the performers who were so important to us all.

Bill's first book The Big Broadcast (co-authored with Frank Buxton) has long been considered
the Bible of the history of the broadcasting industry. This book is its perfect complement.
Bill is also the author of The Over 60 Trivia Book, All Those Things My Teacher Never Told Me,
and Runners-up, Bridesmaids, and Second Bananas.

And forthcoming in 2014: Do You Remember...?


 ...Cousins, if you are a radio or TV buff, you are going to breeze through this book with hardly a blink. Bill's confessional reads like a family newsletter.
