- 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, The Syracuse New Times, Big Stir magazine, and AHOY Comics. 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
We have a MYSTERY TRACK! We'd tell you more, but then it wouldn't be a mystery. Duh. We also have brand-new singles from Ken Sharp ("She Hates The Beatles") and Orbis Max ("Love Will Keep Us Together"), and new albums from The Kennedys and The Jeremy Band. A friend asked if we'd be playing anything by The Kinks. Duh. ABBA, too, and I AM GROOT The Spinners. We work in mysterious ways. Sunday night, 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse at WSPJ-LP 103.3 and 93.7 FM, and on the web at sparksyracuse.org
