DJ legend Roe Bonner to hold book signings at Titusville and Smithfield libraries
 BIRMINGHAM, Alabama-Birmingham disc jockey legend Roe Bonner will visit two Birmingham Public Library (BPL) locations on Wednesday, April 12, to promote his new book,  “Behind the Mic: The Rise and Fall of Personality Radio.”

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Bonner will give a talk/book signing at Smithfield Branch Library, #1 8th Ave. West. He will host a second book signing/talk beginning at 2:30 p.m. at the Titusville Branch Library, #2 6th Avenue SW. 

Bonner holds the title for being the longest running DJ for WENN radio station. He gives a unique insider perspective on how millionaire businessman Dr. A.G. Gaston came to own WENN, and built it into the number one station in all of Alabama. Copies of his books will be available for purchase at both Titusville and Smithfield libraries.
