"It is a wonderful history, valuable as a social history as well as a rock 'n' roll history"

"You have woven a tapestry of an era in Bob's side of the bandstand! . . .
those times just had the innocence and excitement of being part of "something" . . .

"One of the most interesting things about My Side Of The Bandstand is the conversational tone of the book . . . (you) feel as if you are in a conversation with Bob . . .
