This charming, humorous audiobook recounts bandleader Peter Duchin's early life and includes anecdotes of his adult life in midcentury America. Golden Voice narrator Johnny Heller turns these details into a cohesive story, which he delivers with ease and clarity. His natural ability to control the pace and rhythm of his presentation provides a skillful examination of events. Tidbits about famous people give listeners the inside scoop on celebrities. One such tidbit is that Lee Radziwill, Jackie Kennedy's sister, was once refused entry to a packed famous nightclub where Duchin was performing because there were more important guests already present. This kind of detail will appeal to those interested in twentieth-century social history, Peter Duchin, and, of course, Johnny Heller's insightful performance. E.E.S.
