My interview with Ann Delisi on her Essential Music show is posted here. It's a little longer than the one that aired. (Bonus content!)
Ann was also kind enough to ask me for my Essential Songs, so I gave her a list of my Essential Songs About Growing Up. It was really a thrill hearing her play them on the air. She also read what I had written about each of the songs. So fun. It was like being DJ by proxy. Her shows are archived here. The show with the interview and songs is Sunday, May 6, 2018. My segment is the second half of the two hour show.
I did a recorded interview with Ann DeLisi of Detroit Public Radio 101.9 last week. I really had a great time talking to Ann. She's a lovely person and a very genial radio host. We chatted about how my book Beautiful Music came about, Detroit radio stations of yore, how important music is to Detroiters, the magic of vinyl and how long it's been since either of us has sat down and listened to music without doing anything else at the same time. (A long time for both of us.) A shortened version of the interview will be played on the show Culture Shift during the week of April 30, then a longer version on the air on Sunday, May 6th. More to come.
Feature in the detroit News
Khristi Zimmeth of The Detroit News came to my house to talk to me and David Guralnick took a lot of photographs of our stuff. This is what is known as "Off the Book Page" publicity. Considering that there are barely any "Book Pages" left in the newspaper world, it's a very helpful thing to a writer. Check out her story and our vintage-stuff-filled house.
I spoke to Sven Gustafson at the Daily Detroit Happy Hour Podcast last week.
We had a great talk about the making of THE LEISURE SEEKER film, the differences between the book and movie, making an ass of myself with Helen Mirren, Detroit, my new novel BEAUTIFUL MUSIC and a whole lot more.
