Most widely held works by Tom Joyner
Legendary pioneers of Black radio by Gilbert Anthony Williams( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After World War II, when thousands of African Americans left farms, plantations, and a southern way of life to migrate north, African American disc jockeys helped them make the transition to the urban life by playing familiar music and giving them tips on how to function in northern cities. These disc jockeys became cultural heroes and had a major role in the development of American broadcasting. This collection of interviews documents the personalities of the pioneers of Black radio, as well as their personal struggles and successes. The interviewees also define their roles in the civil rights movement and relate how their efforts have had an impact on how African Americans are portrayed over the air

Hall of Fame disc jockey Tom Joyner uses his signature brand of humor to discuss everything from business to careers to relationships as he shares the insights and lessons he's learned along the way. Now the host of a radio show that reaches ten million people a day, Joyner started his career at a small AM radio station in his home state of Alabama, working his way across the Midwest, and eventually landing in Chicago. In 1985, he made headlines as "the hardest working man in radio" when he commuted between a morning show in Dallas and an afternoon show in Chicago, earning the nickname "The Fly Jock." In more than thirty years behind the microphone, he's learned a thing or twenty about life, love, money, marriage, black people, white people, and everything in between.--From publisher description
