The Talk Radio Guest Book: How To Be The Perfect Talk Radio Guest
"Dave Congalton has been conducting on air interviews with a wide variety of guests ranging from experienced authors and 'experts' in various fields to local, regional and national activists to local, state and national politicians. In that time he's labored through the 'who booked this clown' interviews to the 'PLEASE, come back on the show SOON' interviews. If you want to secure an interview spot on talk radio, wouldn't you rather know the 'Do's and Don'ts' of A) getting scheduled and B) making it an interview worth airing? Then take the time to take good advice from someone with the experience you need."
—Phil Strider, Veteran Radio Broadcaster and Syndicated Programmer
"Make your life, as well as the lives of your talk show host and audience, easier and more riveting! Read Dave Congalton's and Deborah Bayles' new book, The Talk Radio Guest Book: How To Be The Perfect Talk Radio Guest. As both a former radio talk show host and having been a frequent guest on Dave's and Deborah's shows, I can tell you, they GET IT! Highly recommended!"
