- 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.

Tonight On THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO
Everywhere it's Christmas! So everywhere it's time for The 18th Annual This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio Christmas Show, as Dana & Carl--your duly-appointed emissaries from The Island Of Misfit Toys--line up a few holiday tunes for your eggnog accompaniment. New stuff! Old stuff! And each 'n' every one of The Beatles' annual Christmas messages. Are you a Grinch? Well, you still have time to make your heart grow three sizes this day. We'll provide the soundtrack, Sunday night, 9 to Midnight Eastern, www.westcottradio.org
