Paul H.D. Rothfuss National Book Tour Talk, September 22nd at 1pm
Free with museum admission

ALIAS EMPEROR RODGERS is a fun-filled overview of 1960’s top forty radio in America, much of which took place when AM radio was king and nutty promotions were an integral part of business. When Rothfuss was dubbed Emperor Rodgers on Baltimore’s #1 radio station, he was a willing participant in the hijinks. At one point he mounted an elephant, dressed only in a purple tunic, riding it through Baltimore on a frigid March day.

Born in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Rothfuss got his start in his hometown at age seventeen when he landed his first D.J. gig at an AM radio station. He went on to rise up through the ranks to helm his own show on Baltimore’s #1 radio station, the legendary WCAO. Later in Rothfuss’ career, he became a media magnate owning over forty radio stations across the United States with business partner Kerby Confer.

The book is now available at and in various formats. In addition, the audio book can be found at and iTunes. For more information about the book or Rothfuss’ national tour, visit Alias Emperor Rodgers on Facebook or
