Publisher's Summary

Canada's premiere rock radio interviewer and radio series host, Jeff Woods, narrates the audio version of his acclaimed first nonfiction book, featuring a nostalgic romp through his own career in radio and records, alternating between that and exclusive conversations with the legends of rock.  

Woods has followed his passion wherever it’s taken him. Radio, Records & Rockstars takes you behind the curtain, revealing what's happened to radio as Jeff also reveals the unvarnished truth of his own storied life, including his professional and romantic peaks and valleys. This work of reflection and conversation relates the stumbles and defeats, truths and triumphs of the artists who will go down in history as helping to define a generation - and of the man who has long brought their stories to listeners across Canada and those tuning in from the USA and around the world.

intriguing blessed account of a true music fan

adio Records & Rockstars by famed Canadian world class radio personality (and of the podcast and syndicated radio show of the same name as well as Legends of Classic Rock show) is an amazing, amusing, detailed book/memoir that follows the author's journey from music fan to radio DJ to record company employee and all points in between. We are given insights to top musician's creative minds (i.e. david gilmour, Angus young, bob seeger, neil peart etc etc via his collection of interviews over the years) and their decision making as well as anecdotes on the making of certain albums. The interviews with David Bowie and Carlos Santana are spiritual and supernatural to say the least and Woods, like a cultural surgeon, is able to extract words of wisdom for his subjects. We also hear of Woods' travels, trials and tribulations, his penchant for the opposite sex and are given a lesson into the sinewy workings of corporate radio. Woods himself is a rockstar that is honest, humourous and knowledgeable. It's like riding a motorbike through the mental MTCGLS of life backed by a passion for music. A wild ride indeed. Available in print (amazon.ca) digital- Kindle and in expanded 15 hour+ audio version (via Audible.com)

Honesty

I had a real connection with Jeff and his story, although I purchased the book wanting to understand his vast knowledge of music and the love he has for it.
It went deeper than that for me, understanding his private life was a facsimile of mine (with less wives).
Overall I have a new respect of him as well as the respect of his career and accomplishments.

Never dull or a lull: The coolest stories ever told.

Learn how to bookmark cause your going listen to this again (& again).
A great listen for rock music fans, make that a MUST LISTEN. This is an equal real life companion to Camron Crows’ movie “Almost Famous”.
Amazing, inspiring interviews with Angus Young, Sammy Hagar, Neil Pearl, David Bowie and the Fleetwood Macs, LED Zeppelins, Pink Floyd’s and Holes too. Jeff Woods tells stories about Rockers and Rock radio people ( some of who I know, that were new to me) and its celebs that are captivating and entertaining. If you love rock, you’ve found the perfect audiobook, written and narrated by a kindred sprit.

Can’t Stop Listening

Jeff Woods is a quintessential story teller. His retrospection of the history of rock is emphasized by his personal life experiences. His story is told from the heart leaving his soul exposed for his readers/listeners.
His ability to glean the subtle nuances of the many rock legends he has interviewed is testament to his in-depth knowledge and understanding of the profession.
While listening to this book, you will be carried away by Jeff’s hypnotic, mellow voice. His love of music is evident in his flawless delivery and rings with an overwhelming quality of sincerity.
I couldn’t possibly recommend this book more. I guarantee you will listen to it more than once.
