I keep receiving personal notes and quick reviews about my book Walking Up The Ramp. I am genuinely touched by the words of kindness and always delighted when folks have discussions about themes that run throughout the 293 pages.
These words came from Kirsten Belh.
So I ended up reading the Amazon excerpt from Gregory’s book, loved it, and bought it a while ago. I’ve only read the first chapter so far (life caught up with me), but my 11 year old saw it by my bedside tonight and asked what “walking up the ramp” meant. I had no clue prior to reading the book, and anyway, it launched into a great discussion of the radio of bygone days versus the radio programs of today.
He asked tons of technical questions that probably only Gregory could answer, but overall he was enraged at today’s radio shortcuts and ‘prepackaged’ programming, calling today’s radio stations “cheapsters!” Lol.
I’ve not read a lot of Garrison Keillor, but that is who came to mind as I read Gregory’s first chapter. It was like a warm cup of tea…
