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.

Rock 'n' Roll Album Titles That Should Be (But Aren't Yet) # 1

Mind your own falcon business.
It's not fair that people who can't sing or play an instrument--people like me--so rarely have the opportunity to come up with names for new rock 'n' roll albums. If I had talent, a band, and a record contract, my first album title would be America's Newest Hitmakers! These would be the titles for some potential follow-up records:

Beatles 2017

Coconut Cream Piety

Debris Or Not Debris

Flatulent Spanish

Houses Of The Hokey

Hotel Cauliflower 

It's The Singer Not The Thong

The Maltese F***up

Never Mind The Never Mind...Never Mind

Rubber Shawl

Tell Me To My Mace

We Who Are About To Diet...SALAD!!

X Marks The...Wait, What The Hell Is That?

Yes Wiccan

Zippety Doo-Doo
