Incredibly Hoot began his drinking career at age five.
He set out to be somebody, hiding behind a microphone. His love of radio may have kept him alive as his imagination put him on the cutting edge of innovation and creation, something he enjoyed more than drinking.
Radio was also his flight of fantasy and escape from reality. Once he put his earphones on, he was somebody.
Hoot, as Brad Edwards scored big in several radio markets, with huge ratings in El Paso and Houston, Texas, and Miami, Florida. His whacky, odd ball personality was custom made for the radio.
In spite of having worked with the legends of radio, Emperor Bob Hudson (his mentor), Gary Owens, Dick Whittinghill, Wolfman Jack, Scott Shannon, John Lander and Mindy Frumkes, his Miami partner, he couldn’t get his share of fame until, he found sobriety.
Drunk & Disorderly, Again is the story of a boy whose life was filled with fun and adventure, some good, and some bad, but always exciting, like Hoot’s escape from Iran, just ahead of Savak, the Iranian Secret Police. His freedom from alcohol and his relationship with God, led to enormous success in business and his personal life, and, unexpectedly, the love of his life.
I hope you enjoy the book.
