PHOENIX – Veteran radio and television sportscaster Walt Brown tells his story as “A Fly on the Wall” (published by AuthorHouse) during major events during the decades of America’s transition towards equality in sports and general life. His memoir provides audiences ranging from sports aficionados to history buffs to advocates of equality with a professional journalist’s in-depth account of behind the scenes in the American sports and celebrity scene, showing popular personas and their relations to pivotal events from a new perspective.
Brown recounts time spent observing and interacting with major athletes, movie stars, politicians and other celebrities during the last half of the 20th century. He shares his personal stories with them and more, portraying the social context of those times, showing readers that society during the 1960s and 70s was much like it is today, with racial tensions, fights for women’s rights and overseas wars. These unfold before the backdrops of arenas, locker rooms, hotel rooms, broadcast booths, cars, busses, elevators and restaurants across America, when the author was “A Fly on the Wall” as the likes of Mohammad Ali, Dan Marino, Rod Laver, Cynthia Potter, Stan Musial, Wilt Chamberlain and other greats made history. With these true stories, Brown shows readers that, “the times and the major ‘names’ of the ‘60s and ‘70s are relevant today within the repeating history that belongs to our world.”
“Human generations cycle forward, like a ‘slinky’ in time. The racial struggles, the push for female equality, the concern about wars around the world, all echo throughout my book just as they do in our life today.” Brown says. With his memoir, he provides readers with a vibrant portrait of the nation’s past, a depiction enriched by the incorporation the nuances of historical context and the humanistic concerns of civil rights and equality and the emancipatory struggle to enact these.
