We Be Big by Rick Burgess and Bill "Bubba" Bussey

This is an autobiography about two highly successful radio personalities, who work together as a team. The book discusses how each became attracted to radio and their lives growing up in Alabama. The book is written so each takes a turn at a chapter, i.e. Rick writes about his childhood in a chapter, then Bubba writes about his childhood in the following chapter. The autobiography covers the span of their lives and how they became a team on the radio. It also includes an idea of what their radio show is like for those who have not heard them.

Overall the book was good. I think it would have been better if it went into more detail. Especially, when they comment on funny stunts that have been done on their radio show. For those who have not heard them, it's a bit of a let down since they do not go into full detail about these funny stunts, etc., leaving the reader wondering. I liked how each wrote a chapter and showed how their lives crossed at different times in their lives to the ultimate point when they became a radio team.

Another aspect of the book leaves ALL readers wondering what is actually true in this book. The subtitle states it's "The mostly true story of how two kids from Calhoun County, Alabama became Rick & Bubba". Mostly true... that leaves a lot to wonder about. On a positive note, the book is filled with bits of humor. It is also an easy read. I would most definitely recommend the book to all who actually know of Rick and Bubba and listen to their show.
