In From Small Screen to Vinyl: A Guide to TV Stars Who Made Records 1950-2000, author Bob Leszczak offers a look at hundreds of stars who performed double duty: as a television performer as well as a recording artist. He looks not only at the show and the performer but the behind-the-scenes dramas that unfolded as each attempted to tackle the two different mediums. Through his interviews with many of these multitaskers, the author has uncovered new, and mostly never before known facts about those who sought to conquer the world of vinyl.

This unique reference covers television actors who also had success (to any degree) as recording artists. Radio-personality Leszczak has interviewed dozens of these celebrities, and nearly 200 are profiled in this A-Z compilation, including Wayne Brady, Lynda Carter, Regis Philbin, Telly Savalas, and Tina Yothers. The brief entries contain biographical information, trivia about the stars' TV show(s), and details about he recording(s). Trivia hounds, television junkies, and music fans will get a kick out of this quirky volume, which is suitable for public and academic collections and could do well in the circulating stacks. * Booklist *
