From the bully pulpit of his radio stations, O'Shaughnessy's in the middle of it all-politics, local and national; culture, high and low and in-between; the media; and, above all, the rich flow of ideas and opinion that from what the Wall Street Journal calls the quintessential community station in America. For this compelling and fascinating collection, O'Shaughnessy gathers interviews with everyone from Tony Bennett on the singer's art to Ed Koch on the art of politics. Essays and talks from luminaries ranging from Henry Kissinger to Larry King, Rudolph Giuliani to Tim Russert and Dan Rather.

Is an endlessly fascinating portrait our time and place-marked as always by Bill O'Shaughnessy's intelligence, insight, and eloquence.
