John Laws is acknowledged as the greatest radio broadcaster Australia has produced. For more than 60 years he has ruled the airwaves, making the 'talk back' genre his own and inspiring a raft of imitators. Still going strong into his 80s, so much has been written about his life Laws, for the first time, tells his remarkable story in his own words. In Conversations with John Laws, 'The King of Radio' addresses the critics and controversies, his success and his radio rivals, and the famous and infamous people he met along the way. Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, Kerry Packer, John Singleton and a host of prime ministers and politicians. Not bad for a Depression-era kid evacuated to Sydney from Papua New Guinea during World War II; one who suffered from polio as child (and again as an adult), was a loner at school and then lost his father when he was just 15 years old. From this 'nothing', as Laws saw his early life, he made something special.
