We Be Big

“We Be Big The mostly true story of how two kids from Calhoun County, Alabama became Rick & Bubba” by Rick Burgess and Bill “Bubba” Bussey with Don Keith

We Be Big is the story of two fat (used to be athletic) guys from the south who fell in love with radio and after some difficulties started a talk show. They are southern, hard working, Christian, good ol’ boys who love to their families, love the Lord and love to eat. And not necessarily in that order.

I had no idea who these people were before I started reading the book. I think this puts a different slant on it. The typical person purchasing the book will likely know these men and a bit of their story. But here is my humble opinion - The book was a very easy read. Even though some of the radio jargon was unfamiliar to me the book was still very easy to follow.
The Christian perspective was unexpected considering they are secular radio hosts. But I appreciated how they put their personal lives out for the world to see in their show and this was another part of who they were. This was obviously what made them the hosts that they are today.
I think the only thing that bothered me about the book was the title. The “mostly true” part had me wondering the entire book if what I was reading was true or not.
It was funny and taught me some things about radio that I didn’t know before. I will be definitely be keeping this book.
