Sullivan releases new book

The cover of John Sullivan newest book, ‘The Live 25 in Hi-Fi Jive.’

OSWEGO — Former Oswego mayor and current columnist for The Palladium-Times John T. Sullivan Jr. has released a new book about the world of local radio during the 1960s.

“In sharing anecdotes and describing the goings on in radio during that daytime AM heyday, the author creates a playlist of tunes that will stick to your ribs as you read and singalong,” reads the summary for ‘The Live 25 in Hi-Fi Jive... Memoirs of a Teenage Disc Jockey.’ “It is a Baby Boomer’s road trip back to the halcyon days of doo-wop and one-hit wonders.”

Sullivan is the author of several other books including “Forks In The Road” and “Pee Not Your Pants: Memoirs of a Small Town Mayor.” He served as Port City mayor from 1987-1991. The book is currently available online and in ebook format. It will be available later this month at Oswego’s river’s end bookstore.
