About Me

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.

NOT Tonight On This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio




Good news and bad news, with the bad news first: due to technical issues, there ain't no This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio with Dana & Carl this week. The good news? The issues appear minor, so we should get back to the serious business of The Best Three yadda yadda Friggin' Planet in time for next week's show. And more good news: the TIRnRR archive has been completely updated. No new TIRnRR tonight? Listen to an old TIRnRR! The currently-available TIRnRR archive goes back about a year, and includes our 800th show, our 50 Years Of The Monkees extravaganza, and everything else we did from 11/1/15 through last week. You can also catch up with Everyone's Invited, The Record Farm, EDM With Max, and Play I Some Music. Yep, that whole Hee Haw gang is available for you right now over at www.westcottradio.org. Listen! Download! Listen again! And we'll be back next week for This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio # 849.
