CBS's Charles Osgood takes readers on a journey back to 1942, when he was 9-year-old Charlie Wood of Liberty Heights. Although a tumultuous year in the world, it was one of baseball, radio serials, movies, and first love for Charlie. He recalls his youth with wry, self-effacing humor. The pleasure of this memoir isn't so much in the events as in the joy in Osgood's voice as he shares them. When he describes his favorite radio shows, he can still do all the voices from memory, adding a full range of sound effects. His vocal work brings the people of his childhood to life as well. This memoir is tailor-made for listening. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
