Description

Witty, wise, rueful commentaries from one of broadcasting's funniest, most stylish writers and newsmen. "Charles Osgood is one of the best writers in America today, any form or medium," says Dan Rather, and Jim Lehrer concurs, "He is a special mind and voice in a business where his kind is rare-and cherished." No one writes quite the way he does-the offbeat stories that make listeners stop and pay attention; the commentaries in which he shares his sense of wonder, dismay, or amusement; the well-spun tales of irony that often burst forth into wordplay or even poetry. See You on the Radio gathers together over one hundred essays on everything from potholes, perfumes, felons and "freeloaders" ("Credit card customers paying on time! Taking bread from the tables of the moneylenders!"); to psychopaths and politicians (more alike than you think); to earthquakes, animal heirs, and the advancement of science. In all, it is further evidence of why, in the words of Walter Cronkite, Charles Osgood "is one of the greatest talents in broadcasting today."

Professional reviews

"[EDITOR'S NOTE: This 1999 recording was reviewed in a slightly abridged version as shown]-- Those who enjoy "The Osgood Files" on CBS radio will find familiar stuff in this brief collection from that popular feature. Charles Osgood's gentle, bemused style of brief human interest stories and doggerel poetry remains a favorite, not only of the public, but of his colleagues, who never tire of interviewing or spotlighting him on their own news shows. Those who haven't heard Osgood's show should pick this up to discover what they've been missing. Y.R. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
