Bay & Associates, stepped up to the challenge of publicizing this renowned figure. We hit the trail at a full run, getting Bob Boze Bell on local TV such as PBS Horizon, setting up book signings and a feature article in Phoenix Magazine. Covering the State of Arizona – Bob Boze Bell’s book is now in the hands of many.
According to Leslie Bay, “Bob Boze Bell is a dream client, a true talent. Since Bob had such a background in print and electronic media, he could carry out any assignment– a master storyteller, historian and artist that can paint a picture through words and art like nobody else. All you had to do was show him the way and he fulfilled the PR efforts and then some.”

Author, publisher, illustrator, and Emmy-winning director and host Bob Boze Bell puts the everlasting allure of Route 66 into perspective by showing readers what it was like growing up in Kingman, during the heyday of automobile travel in the 1950’s and 1960’s. This personal take on the Mother Road’s History – part autobiography, part narrative history, part oral history, all beautifully illustrated – expertly weaves personal memories and observations with entertaining first-person accounts of people who lived, worked, and played along the road. Bell digs deep into the roots of the Route 66, offering insights into the people who made it run: from the neon-lit motels to the greasy-spoon diners, and even the shady roadside attractions.
