If you're a radio person, Sean Conrad's book "Kickin' Out the Jams" will make you remember the fun, crazy, irreverent, mostly magical times we had. If you weren't privileged to work in a radio station, this book will take you to places and events you'd never otherwise experience. Sean's stories epitomize the oft-stated radio adage "You can tell the quality of the jock by the size of the U-Haul he brings to town."

This is a great book. It reads like a conversation with friends at a bar. Probably the best book on radio that I have read since SuperJock by Larry Lujack.

A fascinating and humorous read! It is a well written book, and sometimes zany look at one man's journey during the golden age of radio and music. From playing the hits to getting the hits played, Sean's adventures in the radio and record business are a wild ride! I could not put this down! ...I LOVED IT.

• Sean Conrad’s KICKING OUT THE JAMS is the 50,000 whats and 50,000 what-nots of radio. A wild nostalgic journey of destruction and disc jockeys. Sean takes you back to those golden days when radio was our constant companion. If you think what came out of it was fun, wait till you see what went into it. This book is my pick hit of the year.
