In his book, ON AIR: My 50-Year Love Affair with Radio, Jordan Rich talks candidly about his experiences behind the microphone, from his college days to his years with WBZ. We meet those who mentored him as he touches on his love of theatre and music, the mercurial world of radio employment (and unemployment), the support and love of his family, and one key friendship as rock-solid as Mt. Rushmore. He talks about creating a small voice-over recording business, entertaining for years on the road, and valuable life lessons learned in and out of the studio. There is also a revealing look at what it’s been like to interview some of the biggest stars to come through Boston over the years. At times, the story becomes personal. Jordan shares insight into the demons that nearly derailed his career, as well as personal tragedies he was forced to overcome. But in the end, those challenges only helped to strengthen his love affair with radio that still exists today. He hopes this short memoir will offer a lesson or two and some inspiration for any up and coming broadcaster out there!
