    Great book with lots to interest

    This is such a great idea for a book and just the sort of thing I love to read. I love all the photos included and I like the background info to the interviews rather than just the articles themselves. The author goes behind the scenes interviewing a few stars from radio/TV/personalities from the 70s. Photos are included, also photos of letters from the personality/agent/newspaper report etc. There are also a few amusing little quips thrown in. An interesting and entertaining little book. The interviewees are not just any Tom, Dick or Harry-not unknowns-there are mentions from big names such as Noel Edmonds, Tony Blackburn, Alan Freeman, Ann Aston, Esther Rantzen Gilbert O'Sullivan, Austin Mitchell-Calendar on ITV, Batley Variety Club-a place quite near me where my parents used to go every Saturday night to watch the stars of the day. Having really enjoyed Graham Higson's book ‘How Much for a Little Screw’ where he tells us many anecdotes from behind the counter in a hardware store-now Graham is going back in time and exchanging his smock for a 'cool' leather jacket and telling us what goes on behind the scenes with the celebrities. It makes excellent reading. A real treasure trove of interest for me! There's so much in it! Lots of fascinating facts and figures. On the amazon listing, there are ‘officially’ 84 pages. On a reasonably small text size I actually got 134 pages/turn overs on my Kindle Fire HDX so there was more material than I was expecting-lots of photos, letters, a nice touch getting their autograph in his autograph or visitor's book as he calls it and for him to show pics of every star's signing who he had interviewed. There are lots of snippets involving both the celebs interviewed and others who happened to be there. This is a very interesting piece put-together by Graham Higson, from his time as a freelance writer/reporter. It's taken from his audio tapes of celebrity interviews, letters, photos and magazine and newspaper articles he wrote at the time. A piece of history yet so many of these names will still be recognisable.
