C.B.S. The Chucklehead Broadcasting System: Celebrating 44 Years of Glorified Insignificance
Here’s the scoop, pilgrim. Broadcast gossip from the other side of the window. C.B.S is a fictional insider’s look at broadcasting through the eyes of a maverick radio technician who has worked with the top media honchos from the ‘50’s to the ‘90’s. An ersatz story from an airhead who developed into an astute observer of people’s characteristics and the demise of the Fourth Estate, Louis A. Coppola seasons his journal with humor and street philosophy: "News is nothin’ but the glorification of insignificance." In this fictional autobiographical journey readers are transported from Hawaii to Hollywood to Disneyland, then on to the Big Apple and Big City broadcast journalism- a symphony of off-key characters full of diminuendos and crescendos. There’s Uncle Woolly Crankcase, Sue Clueless, Wally Aces, news editor "Roundy"Turkel, Chink and Cholly, technicians Jalanzo, the Commander, and the stentorian announcer Devious Septum.
