Five years ago, New York based writer and musician Chris Kennedy discovered the lost, never-before-published colour photo collection of popular 1950s Cleveland radio DJ Tommy Edwards, and decided to write a book on the find. The richly illustrated book, published by the Kent State University Press, is now available for purchase. The 264-page hardback includes more than 200 colour photographs from the collection that consists of over 1,700 Ektachrome slides of rock-and-roll legends, country music superstars, Hollywood celebrities and “hopeful unknowns”.

Its a bit odd for a book named "1950s Radio In Color" to have a black and white photo on the front of it...
