The Living End

The Living End by Frank Kane - NB

The Living End is the story of the payola scandal that corrupted the recording and radio industries, taking us to a time before Spotify, playlists, downloads, and satellite radio. It was pay to play in order to get a record played. Eddie Marlon was a young kid on the rise, sort of the Tony Montana of the radio industry and he didn’t care whose toes he had to step on to get ahead and who he had to make an example of. It was a tough, hard-nosed business and softies need not apply. This is quite well written and a Kane is fascinated with the subject matter. Quite a different kind of story than his Johnny Liddell PI novels.
