David Sunshine is funny, it is heat-breaking, it is encouraging, and it is dedicated to the memory of my late wife of twelve years, Rue McClanahan. That’s a lot to talk about. Radio has more outlets and more time.

Recent interviews about David Sunshine include Bloomberg Radio(world-wide), X Zone Radio (also world-wide), as well as a 50-plus AM hookup from coast to coast, stretching from AM Radio 970 AM (“The Talk of New York”) to WRLA 870 (“Radio for Grownups”), not to mention On-line, YouTube, iPod, streaming. “In other words,” says Morrow Wilson, “the works."

Why radio? After all, David Sunshine is a novel set in the TV industry during the age of MAD MEN that tells the tale of an innocent young hero who comes to the big city and goes to work for the most famous and highly-regarded TV producer/talk show host in the land, who proudly (if privately) boasts of being a successful con man.

Says Morrow Wilson, “The book follows in the footsteps of Dickens and Mark Twain, whose best work is full to overflowing with colorful characters who either scare the hell out of you or make you laugh out loud. It is fact based -- I was there – but today’s TV talk shows, so called, are really gossip shows. The segments are short. And the emphasis is on ‘gets,’ that is: booking celebrity interviews, whether that celebrity is a movie star, a politician or someone suddenly thrust into the news. The old idea of a TV talk show being about interesting talkers has given way to tabloid TV.”

Says Morrow Wilson of his new novel, “It is funny; it is heat-breaking; it is encouraging. And it is dedicated to the memory of my late wife of twelve years, Rue McClanahan. That’s a lot to talk about. Radio has more outlets across the country and around the world and it also has more time to explore and discuss.”

Is he pleased with radio interviews?

“As long as they keep getting people to read David Sunshine,” laughs Morrow Wilson, “those are my kind of ‘gets.’”
