STORIES FROM THE FIRST 60 YEARS

This is a new personal narrative podcast, personal and professional stories with poignant and humorous moments and lessons learned.  From a memorable night in New York City to missing the opportunity to meet my musical hero to my 15 minutes of fame and beyond.  You can listen wherever you get your podcasts: Apple, Spotify and many other platforms.  Enjoy.

 

Early December is always the saddest time of year in New York. Actually, any day that brings to mind the tragic events of December 8, 1980 is a sad day.  40 years have hardly eased the pain of the loss of John Lennon.  Here are three interviews I conducted on the subject for 1010 WINS all news radio in New York.  Alan Weiss was a local television news producer in 1980 and one of the few who was actually an eyewitness to some of John Lennon’s last moments.  Beatles author Kenneth Womack has written a terrific book about John Lennon’s 1980 musical comeback entitled “John Lennon 1980: The Last Days in the Life.”  And Bob Gruen was not only a well known rock ‘n roll photographer who took some of the most iconic photos of John.  He was John and Yoko’s friend.  I hope you enjoy these conversations: some happy memories at a sad time.  #johnlennon #johnlennonforever

“BACK TO THE GARDEN” SPECIAL ON CBS NEWS RADIO NETWORK

What a treat it was to help create and host the CBS News Radio special “Back to the Garden” on the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Fair.

Broadway icon Hal Prince died on July 31st. It was a pleasure spending a day with him back in 2010 for my “One on 1” series on NY1. Here is a link to the profile. A happy memory at a sad time.

I have a tradition in nyc. If I need a gift for a friend or something for an intern who is new to New York, I go to @strandbookstore and buy a bunch of copies of “City Slickers” by Bill Geist. A must read for any NYer, aspiring NYer or anyone who loves great writing. https://t.co/CnNvvfQjED
