About Me

My photo

I'm the co-host of THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO with Dana & Carl (Sunday nights, 9 to Midnight Eastern, www.westcottradio.org).  As a freelance writer, I contributed to Goldmine magazine from 1986-2006, wrote liner notes for Rhino Records' compilation CD Poptopia!  Power Pop Classics Of The '90s, and for releases by The Flashcubes, The Finkers, Screen Test, 1.4.5., and Jack "Penetrator" Lipton.  I contributed to the books Bubblegum Music Is The Naked Truth, Shake Some Action, Lost In The Grooves, and MusicHound Rock, and to DISCoveries, Amazing Heroes, The Comics Buyer's Guide, Yeah Yeah Yeah, Comics Collector, The Buffalo News, and The Syracuse New Times.  I also wrote the liner notes for the four THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO compilation CDs, because, well, who could stop me?  My standing offer to write liner notes for a Bay City Rollers compilation has remained criminally ignored.  Still intend to write and sell a Batman story someday.

Well, it's gonna be chaos.  On the one side, you have my twenty-one-year-old daughter, fresh from a semester in London, eager to remind everyone of her wit and musical tastes; on the other side...well, there's Dana.  Yep, it's the long-awaited return of The Meghan & Dana Show, that unique radio alchemy of pop worlds colliding, record collections clashing, and generations competing, contrasting, and ultimately co-existing in some kinda loud harmony.  It's radio the way it oughtta be, and it's Sunday night, 9 to Midnight Eastern, only at www.westcottradio.org
