Blast from Your Past is a book series and site-full of memories. Mine, yours, anyone else's of our era I talk with ... mostly as a legacy for pioneering Rock & Roll Radio DJs. Let's face it - Rock & Roll Rescued RadioTM in the mid-Fifties - let's explore how that happened!

You can't talk about early Radio Disc Jockeys without recalling the events, fashions, and att-i-tudes that shaped the music and our lives. 1954 - 1979 were the magical years for Rock Radio. At Blast from Your Past, I hope to entertain and reminisce with you, as we remember what was and how it continues to influence what is.

Blast from Your Past! Rock & Roll Radio DJs: the First Five Years 1954-1959 (Book 1) is available now in print and eBook (enhanced and expanded) at Amazon OR order an author signed print edition here.
