Tales From Azar's Attic: : A Look Inside a Broadcasting Career Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Rick Azar. For many, this name evokes a wave of wistful nostalgia.

A member of the charismatic trio "Irv, Rick and Tom" on WKBW-TV that dominated the Western New York and Southern Ontario airwaves for nearly two decades, Rick Azar tells engaging stories about so many historical beginnings.

His tales chronicle the birth of broadcasting, the contentious start of the Sabres and the beginning of the Buffalo Bills.

Azar shares fascinating behind-the-scenes encounters with some of the colorful celebrities he interviewed - and, more often than not, befriended - over the decades.

Meet Howard Cosell, Jack Kemp, Joe Namath, Ted Williams, Gil Perreault, Wayne Gretzky, Floyd Patterson, Ilio DiPaolo, Jack Nicklaus, Dizzy Gillespie, and so many more.

Azar's journey from Brooklyn to Buffalo, on the stage and on the air, covering sports and offering commentary, is entertaining and insightful.

It also reveals much about Buffalo, his beloved hometown.
