---- "Ain't No Cure For Love" by: "Leonard Cohen"


I just started reading a new book by someone I reviewed and interviewed about a year ago.

I'm talking about Mr. Joel Goldman.

He writes really, really well and I find his books to printed on mouse traps, because they are really really hard to let go of once you pick one up.

---- Closing Time" by: "Leonard Cohen"


Joel Goldman is a great suspense / mystery writer.

I was introduced to him with his book "Shake Down" which I reviewed and, since I have MS and he has "The shakes" which afflict his character Jack Davis, as a fellow sickie, he was good enough to let me interview him.

I have the latest "Jack Davis" novel and its absolutely a page turner.

I'f I didn't have to do this show and registration for classes and my internship and crap like that, I would be finished this book already because its that good.

I have to tear myself away to take care of mundane details because the consequences are too dire for me to ignore. (Or at least my wife tell me so, and in no uncertain terms.)

This was useful last year in the bomb scare.

We even managed to get a sponsor.

Synthesis Part Deux

I am starting an internship next Monday.

I am lining up the paperwork but its the kind of work I'd do out of love, never mind the marks.

I'm going to do my best to help the station WFMU and

I have been looking at their website and I'm going to suggest that they should have a page that opens up into a wiki.

I'm also going to suggest that I be allowed take their entire collection and digitize it (And it is one big-ass collection of vinyl and CDs) and put it all on their intranet so that they will never have to worry about their collection getting physically damaged.

It can even be backed up and a copy, or three, of the back up be kept off site for protection.

Instead, their DJs can call up any tune in the entire collection from the library, mix and match their play list and enjoy the music.

---- "First We Take Manhattan by: "Leonard Cohen"


Okay, I'm going to finish the book tonight as its a real page turner.

---- "Dance Me To The End Of Love" by: "Leonard Cohen | Madeleine Peyroux"


The show notes, including the complete text of this episode, and any and all links to the artists featured, are on a server ... somewhere.

And this show is also being podcast in m4a format, which means that it you use a compatible player, like iTunes, you get the content divided up into chapters with images and "hot links" to the the web, on the topic of the chapter or to accompany the music.

I've stopped asking for your feedback, because I really don't want it.

Like the show? Listen.

Don't like the show, then what are you wasting your time here for?
