Donald Stacy God Of Channel 1 Media Radio Television TV Cover Art Ballentine Paperback Book 1956 Danny Dahl.

The God Of Channel 1, by Donald Stacy.
This is an original Ballantine Books Paperback, 1956.
Total of 184 pages.
First Printing.

Wow!!! A culPOPture wild one.
Issued in 1956, this is about Donald Dahl, a man who began as a radio disc jockey, then this self-aggrandizing climber became an M.C., then clawing his way to national fame as the best-loved personality in television. But fame has a price. In this crazed world of million dollar budgets and Trendex ratings, personality is a commodity, and the reward for success is more success, more money, until a man's life is drained and he has nothing more to give.
Danny Dahl is not a portrait of any one person, but TV has produced a dozen Danny Dahl's.
Ahead of its time, with some great insights into early Television, we get a glimpse of what talking heads, so-called experts, and personalities of today may have gone through to get to where we 'have' to watch them every day.

Fantastic 1950's styled cover art.

In great condition, tight binding of the book cover to pages, tight spine, tight pages, the first page of blurbs before the title page is partially loose, the front cover has two minute frey/niks at the edge, with some soft indentions, yellowed pages from age, exceptionally small separation of front cover from spine at the very bottom, with the normal small amount of vintage wear, essentially not detracting from the enjoyment of this blazing novel.

I ship to all International locations and all USA destinations.
Convo about shipping if you are an interested International buyer.

The Past Meets The Present reading forward into the culPOPture Future.
