NEW ORLEANS RADIO By Dominic Massa, Arcadia Publishing $21.99
Anyone who lived in almost any part of the USA could, in years gone by, have heard the powerful signal of WWL radio and listened to some of New Orleans’ most popular radio voices. Many favorites were featured on the Dawnbuster’s morning show as well as Leon Kelner on the piano with his orchestra from the famed Blue Room of the Roosevelt Hotel. Then there was the Nut and Jeff show on WSMB and many others. It’s another great one in the “Images of America” series published by Arcadia.
