Rock Star-Radio Host WWII Book Club: Back in April, at an Urban Improv event in Boston, Emily got to chatting with a fellow named Tom about their shared fascination with the second World War. When she found out he was reading and enjoying Hugh Ambrose’s The Pacific, she said she’d like to read it and suggested he read her father Andy Rooney’s WWII memoir, My War. When they were both finished with their respective tomes – they resolved – he’d join her on her radio show to debrief. So here we are, eight months later. Why did it take so long to get the two enthusiasts back together, in the same room, you ask? Tom’s pesky world tour got in the way. Oh, right we forgot to mention, Tom is The Tom Hamilton, legendary bassist from Boston’s own, best-selling American rock band of all time: Aerosmith. But that’s just one of his many hats – and today he joins us wearing not his rock & roll– but his history buff hat.
