Two Years and Counting

It's coming up on two years now, since I took over as the mid-day host at WCNY.  A lot has happened, and I thought it was probably a good time to sit down for a bit and take stock of how things are going.

And the Calendar Takes Another Turn

I admit, I've been neglecting my blog.  It's been an incredibly busy year, and I haven't had a lot of time to reflect.  But it's New Year's Day, and I'm fighting the start of a cold, so it seems the perfect opportunity to take it easy and catch up on a few things.  Including the … Continue reading And the Calendar Takes Another Turn

A Quiet Saturday Afternoon

My New Reality Show

I've often thought of pitching a reality show that follows a composer around in their day-to-day activities.  I mean a real reality show, with the person in the career they had long before the reality show started.  Something you know they'll still be doing long after it ends. Then I realize what the show would … Continue reading My New Reality Show
