Radio personality Torchy Smith shares interviews from dozens of screen stars from the ’50s and ’60s in homage to classic TV and the celebrities who made audiences laugh, cry and swoon in his new book, “Shooting the Breeze with Baby Boomer Stars! Surprising Celebrity Conversations for the Retro Generation” (published by Archway Press). The book is available for purchase at:

Seeking to fulfill a void of nostalgia news of stars from the baby-boom generation and others interested in the ’50s and ’60s, Smith offers the 50 best talks with baby boomer stars from his radio program on iHeartRadio. Each of the chapters focuses on a different celebrity. Along with the unknown facts and secrets from the past, the book includes photographs of the people from then and now. The foreword is by Geraldo Rivera.

“It is always good to jolt your memory. When reading my book the reader will trigger memories long forgotten and that alone will make the price of the book worthwhile,” Smith says, adding “Nobody else in America had the gonads to reach out to these Baby Boomers and record them. Nobody my age had the ability to find them and use today’s technology to put this book together.”
