Woke up early this morning and spent 100 minutes doing 10 10-minute interviews with radio stations around America, from Rochester to Charlotte to Abilene… a couple of old friends like Brother Wease in Rochester and Jim Monoghan in New Jersey, new friends like Arroe Collins at WRFX in Charlotte and Terri Knight at KHXS in Abilene – both of them really smart. So by 8:30 I’d done a good day’s work, thanks to my old pal Sal Cirrincione at Premiere Radio. Whew. Can I go back to bed now?
Maybe not. Will be bopping to Los Angeles tomorrow for the big Q & A scene at the Grammy Museum – see you there – and tonight have a reading at the Bernal Heights branch of the SF Public Library. Of course, tonight I’m competing with some guys called the S.F. Giants and the World Series – what idiot booked me into the library tonight? – oh, right, it was me. But there may be at least three people in the city who don’t live and die black and orange, so I’ll have fun anyway. That’s what Tivo is for…
You can listen to me blather (but I gotta say the interviewer was superb – Michael Shelley at WFMU) on the first item. The next two are transcripts of chats with Jambase and Grateful Web. And the last is a very interesting piece by James Cullingham, who reviewed me in the Toronto Star. Good stuff.
