"I created Radio Magic way back in 2005 and interviewed many of the world's top magicians alongside lesser known but fascinating talent including the producer of BBCs The History of Magic. In hindsight, with the shows on 24-hour demand repeat at that time, we were podcasting before podcasts! I'm proud of this book and delighted to offer it as an eBook exclusively with Lybrary.com."

Own a piece of magic history!
In July 2005, Jay Fortune and radio presenter Layman Steve hit the airwaves live from London with Radio Magic; a lively hour-long radio show dedicated to magic and magicians. Within weeks Radio Magic became the world's number one radio show in this specialist area, with more and more listeners tuning in every week.
Radio Magic: The Interviews Season One is a collection of the transcripts of interviews broadcast from July to December 2005. With a foreword by John Lenahan, this book of expert comment and advice is a gold-mine for the magician looking to improve their craft and offers a worldview of magic in the early 21st century.
Radio Magic: The Interviews Season One features hypnotist Matthew Stirling, sleight-of-hand expert Simon Lovell, world-famous magician Paul Daniels, dealer and creator Mark Leveridge, mentalist Luke Jermay, illusionist Russ Stevens, TV producer, creator and consultant Anthony Owen, manipulation expert Duncan Trillo, TV producer Andy Batten-Foster, and master magicians Eugene Burger and Jeff McBride. With a bonus chapter offering a new philosophy on magic by Walter Llewellyn McKone D.O. and a response by Eugene Burger, this book of expert comment will certainly set you thinking.
A huge amount of magic is covered in these pages from hypnotism and NLP, sleight-of-hand, magic book publishing, history of magic, starting your own magic business, mentalism, mind-reading, stage illusion, breaking into television with your magic, manipulation, famous magicians, creativity, bizarre magic, close-up, scripting, theory and philosophy.
As John Lenahan says in his foreword to this book; "If you can't get inspiration from these guys then you should go back to stamp collecting as a hobby."
