“I can’t remember when I had a better interview. It was even more enjoyable listening to it.”
– Thomas Fleming
“Of the many interviews I did to celebrate the launch of my memoir “Who Knows Tomorrow” the lovely one with Tim was the most significant to me. He is so insightful that many of the comments he made reveled hidden stories in the manuscript I had thought I knew so well! It was deeply enjoyable, and the highlight of my press tour”
– Lisa Lovatt-Smith
“I have done a lot of interviews in my job and for this book and you are, far and away, the best interviewer I’ve ever encountered. You are the interview that every author dreams of having. You ask thoughtful questions, make it engaging, and allow the authors to fully answer questions.”
– Stephen P. Hinshaw
“What a pleasure it was doing the show. Rarely have I had an interviewer so genuinely interested and well-versed in my work. I would do his show again in a heart beat.”
– Tim Brady

“Tim Danahey is a fantastic host. The questions were interesting, intelligent and wide ranging. I even learned something new about the subject of my book, Roald Amundsen, through our conversation. And that is honestly the only time that has happened. It was a genuine pleasure being on this show. I’d gladly return to talk about my next book.”

“The Tim Danahey Show Book Hour is one of the best shows on the air for book lovers – a mix of serious discussion, humor, and passion from both Tim Danahey and the authors he interviews. He is one of the few interviewers I’ve worked with who actually read my books and knew the subject matter before he interviewed me.”

“Being a guest on your show was a very satisfying experience, as you had really read my book, knew what was in it, even to page number references, and had plotted out logical segments for discussion. I was especially pleased that you plucked from PEARL HARBOR CHRISTMAS the significance of Churchill’s very shrewd crony Lord Beaverbrook, his production czar.”

“I did a number of radio interviews to promote my book, ‘Blowing Smoke’. Most hosts seemed to have barely skimmed the material, and I suspect that a few stopped at the jacket copy. Tim Danahey put them all to shame by consuming every page and then engaging me in a probing and stimulating discussion. While honest about the book’s weaknesses, Danahey was exuberant about its strengths, and he enthusiastically promoted the book throughout two extended interviews.”

“I’ve become a Tim Danahey fan after he had me on his program. Tim asks incisive questions. He is even-handed in his approach while probing to the bottom of an issue. I’ve been impressed with the quality of the guests he has been able to attract. With a sponsor and a growing audience, Tim’s program could take off!”

“Talk show host Tim Danahey is well-described as a “super host” – well read, hospitable, sensitive to rhythms and shifts in conversation, he is provided me with a warm, welcoming, and intelligent atmosphere. While many hosts are self-promoting, Tim is trying to promote something much larger – engaging ideas and people themselves. He is keen to help authors and thinkers further their books and thinking. Moreover, he is keen to engage with his audience in ways which include, uplift, and invite. Tim’s right in the elite ring of hosts I’ve worked with for his care, preparation, and enthusiasm.”

“From my perspective, it’s much appreciated when the interviewer has taken the time and effort to actually read substantial portions of the book. Tim Danahey was good in allowing the time and space to bring out the ‘small stories’ behind the big picture. It made for good conversation. Having seen his roster of guests, it’s good to know his show picks up a wide range of issues and is receptive to differing points of view. To the extent he has other topics that fit within my scope, I’d be very interested in being on the show again. Keep up the terrific work.”

“My authors have had great experiences on the Tim Danahey Show. He knows his audience, asks smart questions, and, perhaps more importantly, actually listens to the answers. And on the back end, he’s the consummate professional when it comes to scheduling and prepping so that everything goes smoothly.”

“Unlike most radio hosts who only read the jacket before conducting an interview, Tim Danahey delves into the heart of the books for his interviews. With precise questions, and in a natural, free-flowing conversation, Tim got me to talk about my motivations, experiences, and memories of Iraq in a very real and very deep way. The listeners of his show expect excellence from him and his program, and he delivers.”

“I enjoyed being on your show. I really appreciated your interviewing style, which I’d describe as incisive yet leisurely. It was a treat to answer your thoughtful questions and, at the same time, I liked the casual pace you set as the host. We were able to get deep inside the topic – radio at its best. I hope I’ll have the opportunity to come on your show in the future.”

“Tim Danahey is the ideal radio interviewer – not only does he do his homework but his enthusiasm makes you feel right at home. As a result, we got into fascinating corners of my book that no one else has touched. Let’s do it again real soon.”

“I really enjoyed it. You are very generous with your airtime and I do appreciate that. Most radio shows want to deal with Afghanistan in a few minutes but the complex foreign policy issues I deal with simply cannot be explained in soundbites. You mentioned in an earlier e-mail that my book ‘presented a picture of the conditions and culture of Afghanistan that has not made it to the mainstream press’. I can only agree. This is partly why I wrote the book! I am convinced that the West’s strategy in Afghanistan will only succeed if Western publics are properly informed about what is going on over there. Shows like yours go a long way towards filling the gap and perform a truly important public service. I’d love to come on your show again”.

“It was an absolute pleasure to appear on The Tim Danahey Show. Tim had obviously spent a good deal of time with my book, and it was a great treat – in this age of ever shorter media sound bites and cable news carping – to be able to have such an in-depth and intelligent conversation.”

“My publicist told me that Tim Danahey was an expert reviewer, and I found him to be one of the best with whom I have been on the air, over the course of publishing twelve books. Tim obviously read the book carefully, and had a series of questions for me that I could have not improved upon had I written them myself. He has a strong feeling for history, and clearly understood everything that I wanted to emphasize, both in the book, and during our interview. He made it a real pleasure to talk with him, and I hope to be on the air with him in the future.”

“You were a great host. Knowledgeable and able to make a very complex topic accesible to your audience. Being on the show was great fun and I agree with all those who have mentioned how unusual and rewarding it is to talk to a radio host who has actually read one’s book. It was truly enjoyable.”
