Way Out World - Long John Nebel (1962)

Book find of the week, Nebel's account of his experience as a hot radio jock with a hit show that had him interviewing 'denizens of the way out world'. He was a witty guy with a wry take on all this, walking the line between scepticism and a genuine interest in the esoteric. I like his writing style too. As a one-time con man himself he was right for the job, and his prose style has that old hipster knowingess about it.
