Johnny Olson A Voice In Time



I recently finished this great book about the legendary game show announcer Johnny Olson. Written by one of his proteges Randy West, it's a loving look at Johnny's 50 plus year career in the entertainment industry. While he's best known for his announcing work on The Price Is Right and Match Game, he was a star of early radio and television as well. I was surprised to find out all the stuff he did. It's a fantastic read and a must for any game show fan. Here's a link to pick up the book on Amazon. It's money well spent.
