As a series of impressions and reflections regarding contemporary American culture, and as an extended meditation on both our media and our society, this keenly focused book is as insightful as it is refreshing.

Throughout Radio On, 'Vowell's touch is about as delicate as Teddy Kennedy's after a pitcher of martinis' (Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times).

'A sparky, ferociously intelligent examination of a medium that people forget about from one of the most promising young journalists I've come across recently.' -Nick Hornby
