Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis

“John Gorman describes in exclusive, behind-the-scenes detail the state of rock ’n’ roll from the early ’70s to the late ’80s, when just about anything happened and everyone looked the other way . . . This is essential reading for musicians, entertainment industry leaders, and music fans alike.” ― Mike Shea, CEO/Co-Founder, Alternative Press magazine

This rock and roll radio memoir takes you behind the scenes at the nation’s hottest station during FM’s heyday, from 1973 to 1986. Sex and drugs, music and merchandising―it was a wild time when the FM airwaves were wide open for creativity and innovation.

John Gorman led a small band of true believers who built Cleveland’s WMMS from a neglected stepchild into an influential powerhouse. The station earned high praise from musicians and even higher ratings from listeners.

Gorman tells how WMMS remade rock radio while Cleveland staked its claim as the “Rock and Roll Capital” by breaking major international music acts.

Filled with juicy insider details, this fast-paced story will entertain anyone who listened in during those glory days when FM delivered excitement and the Buzzard ruled the airwaves.
