    From “the voice that drew a generation of teenage boys to their radios,” a memoir detailing the veteran radio DJ’s career and celebrity relationships (New York Times). 
     
    Carol Miller is indisputably America’s premiere female rock ’n’ roll disc jockey, as her well-deserved induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame proves. 
     
    In her illuminating, fascinating, sometimes heartbreaking memoir, Up All Night, the legendary “Nightbird” tells the story of her colorful career—her rise to success in a male-dominated music industry; her close and personal dealings with rock royalty like Bruce Springsteen (whose music she first introduced to New York radio), Sir Paul McCartney, and Steven Tyler (whom she dated)—and details openly and honestly her battle against breast cancer for the very first time. 
     
    “Radio legend Carol Miller . . . the sultry-voiced and still-fabulous airwaves icon . . . is a beloved veteran of . . . classic rock.” —New York Post
