On February 4th 1978 Roger Quick peaked at #29 with his trucking themed hit, “Ten Miles from Home,” on the Canadian national country charts. His record label, Thunderbird Recording, was based out of Burford, ON. This top 30 single brought Thunderbird out to the big time, leaving an indelible mark in the music history books. <br /><br />Thunderbird Recording was owned and operated by Jim Allison, a man who bled country music. This book is his story; his roster of 22 acts and the trials and tribulations of running a small label in 1970’s Canada. Thunderbird ceased operations in December 1978 after three and a half years, but in that time left a considerable musical catalog of six albums and thirty-five singles. This book includes the Thunderbird Story as well as 40 biographies; 16 Thunderbird acts such as JK Gulley & Dusty Road, Charlie Louvin, Don Oatman, Roger Quick, Jan Stevens, The Muir Family, The Brennan's and Whisky Hollow, plus 34 acts associated with Thunderbird, including; Marie Bottrell, Johnny Burke, Harry Hibbs, Fred McKenna, The Mercey Brothers, Ruth Ann (Wallace) Onley, Gerry Risser, Barbara (Saunders) Axford, Terry Sumsion, Michelle Wright and even Shania Twain back when she was known as Eilleen. <br /><br />Painstakingly researched over a two year period with extensive research and over sixty interviews, this book is the untold story, a moment in time, a forgotten memory, but still just as important to know and celebrate; That Brant County Sound! The Ballad of Jim Allison and Thunderbird Recording.<br /><br />That Brant County Sound! is the 13th book by author Thomas A. ‘Tom’ Ryerson and is based on true events with a little poetic license added for good measure. This work has been a two and a half year odyssey and the author hopes readers thoroughly enjoy it and leave reviews.

<p>The astonishing story of America’s airwaves, the two friends—one a media mogul, the other a famous inventor—who made them available to us, and the government which figured out how to put a price on air.</p><p>This is the origin story of the airwaves—the foundational technology of the communications age—as told through the forty-year friendship of an entrepreneurial industrialist and a brilliant inventor.</p><p>David Sarnoff, the head of RCA and equal parts Steve Jobs, Jack Welch, and William Randolph Hearst, was the greatest supporter of his friend Edwin Armstrong, developer of the first amplifier, the modern radio transmitter, and FM radio. Sarnoff was convinced that Armstrong’s inventions had the power to change the way societies communicated with each other forever. He would become a visionary captain of the media industry, even predicting the advent of the Internet.</p><p>In the mid-1930s, however, when Armstrong suspected Sarnoff of orchestrating a cadre of government officials to seize control of the FM airwaves, he committed suicide. Sarnoff had a very different view of who his friend’s enemies were.</p><p>Many corrupt politicians and corporations saw in Armstrong’s inventions the opportunity to commodify our most ubiquitous natural resource—the air. This early alliance between high tech and business set the precedent for countless legal and industrial battles over broadband and licensing bandwidth, many of which continue to influence policy and debate today.</p>

<p><p>The year is 1999. Connemara is braced for the new millennium. ‘No Scrubs’ rules the airwaves, bootleg DVDs of <i>Cruel Intentions</i> are thrilling crowds of sexually progressive teens, and if you’re not matching combat trousers with platforms, you are nobody.</p><br /><p>In the midst of this perplexing world, a girl named Ciara, inspired by her heroes Anne Frank and Aung San Suu Kyi, begins to document her not dissimilar struggles – against pushy parents, mysterious boys and the stubborn non-appearance of boobs. The road ahead will be tough, but she must persevere: How else will she find fame, fortune and love in the spandex-clad arms of Dean Cain?</p><br /><p>Based on the cult radio segment of the same name, <i>Ciara’s Diary</i> is a fresh and funny trip through the warped mind of a turn-of-the-century teenager. The spiritual successor to Adrian Mole, albeit with more shifting, <i>Ciara’s Diary</i> is a must-read for anyone who remembers dancing to ‘Maniac 2000’ at the parish disco.</p></p>

<p><b>A <i>Library Journal</i> Best Book of 2015<br /><br />Go behind the scenes of seven of today’s most popular narrative radio shows and podcasts, including <i>This American Life</i> and <i>RadioLab</i>, in graphic narrative.</b><br /> <br />Every week, millions of devoted fans tune in to or download <i>This American Life</i>, <i>The Moth</i>, <i>Radiolab</i>, <i>Planet Money</i>, <i>Snap Judgment</i>, <i>Serial</i>, <i>Invisibilia </i>and other narrative radio shows. Using personal stories to breathe life into complex ideas and issues, these beloved programs help us to understand ourselves and our world a little bit better. Each has a distinct style, but every one delivers stories that are brilliantly told and produced. <i>Out on the Wire</i> offers an unexpected window into this new kind of storytelling—one that literally illustrates the making of a purely auditory medium. <br /> <br />With the help of <i>This American Life</i>'s Ira Glass, Jessica Abel, a cartoonist and devotee of narrative radio, uncovers just how radio producers construct narrative, spilling some juicy insider details. Jad Abumrad of <i>RadioLab</i> talks about chasing moments of awe with scientists, while <i>Planet Money</i>’s Robert Smith lets us in on his slightly goofy strategy for putting interviewees at ease. And Abel reveals how mad—really mad—Ira Glass becomes when he receives edits from his colleagues.

Few inventions evoke such nostalgia, such deeply personal and vivid memories as radio?from Amos ?n? Andy and Edward R. Murrow to Wolfman Jack and Howard Stern. Listening In is the first in-depth history of how radio culture and content have kneaded and expanded the American psyche.<P>But Listening In is more than a history. It is also a reconsideration of what listening to radio has done to American culture in the twentieth century and how it has brought a completely new auditory dimension to our lives. Susan Douglas explores how listening has altered our day-to-day experiences and our own generational identities, cultivating different modes of listening in different eras; how radio has shaped our views of race, gender roles, ethnic barriers, family dynamics, leadership, and the generation gap. With her trademark wit, Douglas has created an eminently readable cultural history of radio.<P>"Douglas?s wonderful book offers a sophisticated history of radio listening." ?Journal of American History

<DIV><B>From the former chief economist of the FCC, a remarkable history of the U.S. government’s regulation of the airwaves</B><BR /><BR /> Popular legend has it that before the Federal Radio Commission was established in 1927, the radio spectrum was in chaos, with broadcasting stations blasting powerful signals to drown out rivals. In this fascinating and entertaining history, Thomas Winslow Hazlett, a distinguished scholar in law and economics, debunks the idea that the U.S. government stepped in to impose necessary order. Instead, regulators blocked competition at the behest of incumbent interests and, for nearly a century, have suppressed innovation while quashing out-of-the-mainstream viewpoints.<BR />  <BR /> Hazlett details how spectrum officials produced a “vast wasteland” that they publicly criticized but privately protected. The story twists and turns, as farsighted visionaries—and the march of science—rise to challenge the old regime. Over decades, reforms to liberate the radio spectrum have generated explosive progress, ushering in the “smartphone revolution,” ubiquitous social media, and the amazing wireless world now emerging. Still, the author argues, the battle is not even half won.</DIV>

<strong>"I'm Terry Gross and this is <em>Fresh Air</em></strong> . . ."<br /><br /><strong>Now available in paperback--a selection of revealing interviews from the award-winning National Public Radio show</strong><br /><br />Originating from WHYY-FM in Philadelphia and heard on more than 450 NPR stations, <em>Fresh Air</em> with Terry Gross has become a daily habit with millions of listeners nationwide--a must for anyone hoping to keep up with what's happening in the arts. Over the last twenty years, Terry's guests have included our most significant writers, actors, musicians, comics, and visual artists.<br /><br />For her first collection, Terry has chosen more than three dozen timeless interviews that prove to be as lively on the page as they were on the radio. Her questions--probing yet sensitive--encourage revelations from figures as diverse as John Updike, Isabella Rossellini, Conan OBrien, Samuel L. Jackson, Johnny Cash, and Nicolas Cage. And in her introduction, the generally self-effacing host of <em>Fresh Air</em> does something she wouldnt dream of doing on the air--she reveals a thing or two about herself.
