Moser at 01:28:00 AM on January 13, 2013 In 2009, TV and radio producer Denny Somach saw the value in a program that disc jockey Carol Miller was doing on New York's classic rock radio station WAXQ-FM, 104.3. She was playing the music of iconic rock band Led Zeppelin interspersed with trivia and tidbits of information. So Somach helped syndicate "Get the Led Out" nationally, writing and producing it and offering more than 5,000 hours of interviews he conducted and audio content he collected about the band since early in his career at Allentown rock radio station WSAN-AM 1470. About two years ago, Somach says he realized that even using a minute or two of his material in each show meant the public still never would be exposed to the bulk of it. So Somach, an Allentown native, decided to put together a book. That story is told in "Get The Led Out: How Led Zeppelin Became the Biggest Band in the World," (Sterling; $29.95, 256 pp.). The detailed coffee-table tome includes 26 interviews, including interviews with all four members of Led Zeppelin. Denny SomachThe book, released Nov. 6, couldn't have come at a better time, with Led Zeppelin's profile at its highest in years. There was the Oct. 17 limited theatrical release of "Celebration Day," the documentary film of the 2007 concert at London's 02 stadium that reunited Led Zeppelin's surviving members — singer Robert Plant, Page and bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones — for the first full concert in 27 years, after they disbanded in the wake of drummer John Bonham's death after a day of binge drinking. On Dec. 2, Led Zeppelin was among those lauded at the 35th annual Kennedy Center Honors, with the ceremony broadcast on national television Dec. 26. In a recent telephone interview, Somach discussed the book, Led Zeppelin's career, and his long fascination with the band. Here is a transcript of the call: FULL STORY OPEN LINK BELOW http://blogs.mcall.com/lehighvalleymusic/2013/01/led-zeppelin-flies-high-again-in-allentown-natives-new-book-.html http://www.blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=185906 John Paul Jones has often made light of the fact that Page and Plant reunited in the mid-'90s for two albums and a world tour without him. He recalled that despite being partners with the pair in LED ZEPPELIN — he found out about their team-up through a third party. "I was kind of disappointed that I found out about. . . I read about it in the newspapers," he said. "I called up somebody who works with all of us at the time and said, 'I see the rumors are getting strong again,' because there's always rumors about reunions and stuff. And they said, 'Oh didn't they tell you?' And I went, 'Well, tell me what?' And he said, 'Well, they're getting back on the road again.' 'Oh, well, OK, (laughs) whatever.'"
