July 8:  Jerry Shinn:  Celebrated journalist and author Jerry Shinn has written a long overdue biography of broadcasting pioneer Charles Harvey Crutchfield, who began his career as a 17-year-old announcer on South Carolina’s first commercial radio station and ended as head of Jefferson-Pilot Broadcasting.  Charles Crutchfield was the father of modern radio and television broadcasting in the Carolinas, a great story on its own, but Shinn captures the essence of the man as a visionary who cared deeply about those who worked for him and the public audiences who were informed by his work.  The book is titled A Voice of His Time, a biography of Charles H. Crutchfield;  Shinn has also written a biography of Loonis McGlohon, Loonis!  Celebrating a Lyrical Life and a recent novel, Dixie Autumn, a mystery dealing with romance, racial issues and family dynamics set in upstate South Carolina in the 1960’s.
