Now For Something Really Different...

Despite all those decades on radio and TV (5!) and all the crazy crap I had to do for Stations to promote the show, it was always my least favorite part of the job. Idealistically, I believed if the show was good enough, the audience would come and grow "organically". Saying how great it was in a :30 sec TV spot seemed obvious, hooray-for-me egotistical and way less attractive. Turns out, the shows did quite ratings-wise, thank you. But was that because the Station spent thousands on TV production and giveaways? Or because, from day to day, the show was just that unique, compelling and damn good? Listeners would have to work that out for themselves. Now comes this book, Watercolor Memories, The Story of Lauren .

"My take on the "political morass" - actually "political more ass"? Redundant. Predictable. Anathema to Liberty and Freedom. There is no area of human existence that is not in irreversible decline - except for those who never progressed past the Crusades anyway.
