    Midwest Book Review

  • “A well-researched work with much information on a radio pioneer.”

    SPERDVAC’s Radiogram

  • “Ohmart has dug out career and personal nuggets that give intriguing pictures of Ameche (a more complex man than his fans ever imagined), of a changing Hollywood, and the perils of mixing career ambition with responsibilities as a husband and father….[A] clear-eyed view of how one man and his family struggled against the vicissitudes of Hollywood life. This is a very human book about a superb talent.”
