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.

Tonight On THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO



Paul. No, not just THAT Paul, the Knighted Beatle visiting Syracuse this week. Other Pauls, too. Paul with his Beat. Paul with his Raiders. Paul with his Peter and Mary. And yeah (yeah yeah), Paul with and without his Wings. It won't be all Paul either; we'll save room for Levi, Micky, Ko, and Maura. Styx and Stones may move your bones; these names will never hurt you. Sunday night, 9 to Midnight Eastern, www.westcottradio.org
