Earlier I mentioned having been interviewed on a local radio show. The full three hour show (with all kinds of music clips), is available on the Radio Free America website on this link. However, one is fairly well mandated to hear out the entire affair, as there is neither a fast-forward nor a rewind control on the player.
Here below on the other hand is a condensed version I’ve prepared for your listening scrutiny. This one I’ve managed to trim down to shortly over an hour. The only music clips are the two songs I did at the Open Mike, where I met Fiddlin’ Big Al, the radio interviewer. The rest of it is my being interviewed about this & that & the other thing:
Of course I put in a plug for the musical. The only thing that’s a downer is that the stated dates are no longer slated, and so the information as to those slots is out of date. That’s because we’ve postponed the concert reading, which as I earlier suggested I feel is the right choice.
I also feel that a bigger and better production of this show is in the works, involving members of the same team, as well as some new players. What’s nice in this town is that the ordinary procedures for producing a show within the Theatre Arts realm or that of the School of Music are adjusted in my favor in the unique case of an original musical. There is a strong sense that a certain community of a Performing Artists is so enamored with the idea that they won’t allow it not to happen. And this is a great relief. It’s not just me anymore. It’s us.
But aside from all things thespian, there is a lot of material on the recorded interview that may appeal to you in an entirely different light. I was able both to tell the story about how I got out of homelessness, and how I became homeless in the first place. And other worthwhile stories have been shared. I hope you enjoy them.
