Publisher's Summary

Take a delightful, amusing journey into the world of radio and music. You will discover the Camiemda Ranch, a magical place high in the Colorado Rockies, where Paddy Gaughan introduced radio broadcasting in the early 20th century. One hundred years later, his great grandson teams up with the nation's finest program director and one of the country's great promotions directors (who are madly in love with one another, but can't seem to settle down in the same city) to establish the world's most famous radio station. Great Music Radio.com recounts the years leading up to this triumph, following the founder's careers and the zany, if not crazy, radio people they meet along the way, and eventually their road trip across the country (à la Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters) picking up their favorite deejays.

The story also tracks the history of the Ranch, a 5,000-acre spread that was built in the 1890s by engineering genius Paddy Gaughan and his amazing musical wife, Carolina Cosimi, (another great love story). Throughout its history, the Ranch is visited by historical figures that come away with new visions for the future (Nikola Tesla, Guglielmo Marconi, W.C. Handy, George Gershwin, Benny Goodman, and many more.) Great Music Radio.com is a fascinating look at the development of music and radio, humorous and smart, a pause-resister, a great beach listen (mountain listen?) but ultimately, a love story from two different moments in time.

    "So damn funny "

    Keats, Shakespeare, Steinbeck, this book resembles none of these. it is however, like having a retired music professor explain music, radio, and art; all while spinning a yarn that brings tears to your eyes.
    A wonderful experience that rekindles one's love of music and a great love story.
