Book Description:


Birmingham, Alabama, has enjoyed a long and distinguished broadcasting history. The city’s first radio station aired in 1922, and television arrived in 1949. Both media produced personalities who became household names in the city. Audiences came to know Joe Rumore, Tommy Charles, Country Boy Eddy, Cousin Cliff Holman, Rosemary, Pat Gray, Tom York, and many others as if they were members of their own families. Even the commercials became as memorable as the news, entertainment, talk, and children’s shows they interrupted.

Author Bio: Author Tim Hollis is a Birmingham native and resident who writes about a wide variety of pop culture nostalgia topics. His previous book for Arcadia, Images of America: Birmingham’s Theater and Retail District, detailed the city’s downtown landmarks. In Images of America: Birmingham Broadcasting, he turns to the rich radio and television heritage of this area and enables his readers to spend some quality time with old friends.
