In spite of a long-sacred unwritten radio law, mid-market newscaster Bryant L. Herman inadvertently becomes part of the news story and politics hold him to the fire. It could cost him his career or change his ambitions, just as he is falling in love. He can’t decide if it’s more important to follow accepted standards or fight the system. His choices are Standard One – stay away from the story, or Standard Two – become an investigative reporter. But then there is Bryant’s own third standard.
This story is about how every day we are affected by standards, whether we perceive their presence or not. “The Real Official, Almost True Backstory for Modern Commercial Radio” is fiction with a lot of truth hiding in the wings. If you’ve ever lived in a small town or close-knit community, you know about double standards. How much more complicated can a triple standard be, right?
World-famous Austin music celebrities and behind-the-scenes radio personalities embody Bryant’s descriptive of this genuine 1970s Texas-style nostalgic romp which also includes love and passion, and an unexpected lethal twist.
“When I was young and impressionable, I saw some things that permanently changed me, changed my mind, and altered life even as I live it today. Things that are defined by standards are often that impactful. The world would surely be a terrible place without them though—standards I mean; you’ve got to have them! Too much of a good thing, on the other hand, is also impacting. Relative to where you stand, the impact can be deadly.”
