Birmingham Broadcasting - Tim Hollis. In a few of my previous books, I briefly detailed my own interest in the subject of Birmingham television, but for those who came in late I will give a capsule version here. Why has there never been a book documenting the rich history of radio and television broadcasting in Birmingham? That is a very good question, and after you have sampled the multitude of different topics in this one, it may be a bit easier to understand the answer.

Broadcasting in the United States began with experiments with wireless transmission during the middle of the 19th century, with varying degrees of success. These transmissions were initially by radio hobbyists fascinated with the technology. Once techniques were perfected, radio became a necessity for military and commercial users alike. Eventually, broadcasting would come to have a major impact throughout the country. Even the commercials became as memorable as the news, entertainment, talk, and children's shows they interrupted.

Tim Hollis, over many years, has collected photos, newspaper clips and information about the early days of Radio and TV in Birmingham, including sponsors, events and sideline stories that make this book just fascinating. The old photos of Birmingham that are included as a bonus are most interesting. The old cars I like the best, like seen at the "Sky Castle" of WSGN radio.

Rating is for the physical quality of the book and not the intellectual content..

I have bought several of these images of America books both paper back and hardcover. DO NOT BUY THE HARDCOVER. The hardcovers are inferior to the paper back in every way, the pages are not gloss, the paper is thinner, the ink is smudgable, it's grossly overpriced, and it's hardly ever in stock.

I have kept the paperbacks and have given away the hardcovers as gifts (to people I won't see often) or donated to my library.

Again another fantastic look at Birmingham by Tim Hollis.

The book is well researched with many little known facts.
As I read, I remembered what was being described from when I was growing up and kept saying "That's right, I remember that!".
Great book.
