RADIO CITY by Hartzell Spence


Email this review


The autorh of One Foot in Heaven writes a first novel in a spirit of disillusion and discouragement over the seamy side of radio. Quite evidently, told from an intimate and somewhat jaundiced view, with a story set against a background of back biting, jealousy, double-crossing, ""trades"" between agencies and clients, fear of disapproval from clients and big business. McKenna is an idealist, who has one blow after another -- until, at the end, he cuts the leading strings, and decides- with a girl who also has ideals of the part radio might play- to start on his own, with an agency that tells the truth. As a novel, it creaks a bit.
