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."

display_descriptionAt least twelve million people listen to Osgood every day on CBS radio, and millions more watch him on CBS News Sunday Morning. All of them would agree that no one delivers quite the way he doesthe 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 some of the best of Osgood's work, over one hundred essays on everything from potholes, perfumes, felons and freeloaders; to psychopaths and politicians (more alike than you think); to earthquakes, animal heirs, and the advancement of science ("Osgood's First Law: Just because something is obvious doesn't necessarily mean that science isn't going to discover it tomorrow").
