Welcome to Light On Light Through, Episode 115 – a 2019 New Year’s special – in which Captain Phil (on WUSB Radio) interviews me about my music, views of Donald Trump, and NASA’s Ultima Thule fly-by.  Not only that – Phil plays, for the first time on any radio station, three rough mixes from my forthcoming Welcome Up album of science fiction songs, to be released by Old Bear Records this Spring: “Samantha”, “If I Traveled to the Past”, and “Welcome Up”.  I always have a good time talking to Phil, but these 90 minutes were really out of the ball park.

Welcome to Light On Light Through, Episode 114, in which I reflect on the shuttering of The Village Voice this past September, and discuss the crucial role it played in my life as a writer.

The first three articles I ever had published anywhere appeared in The Village Voice in the early 1970s.  You can read them for free at the links below:

1. A Vote for McCartney

2. Murray the K in Nostalgia’s Noose

3. Wolfman Hits the Road, Jack

And speaking of Murray the K, if you remember him (or not) and are interested in his work, you might enjoy this playlist that popped up a few weeks ago on YouTube.
