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.

Tomorrow Night On THIS IS ROCK 'N' ROLL RADIO



You know how Dana and I often seem to just wing it, making up the playlist as the show goes on? Not this time. As This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio prepares to hit a major milestone in the middle of this week's extravaganza, the first half of the show will lead up to that magic moment. I'll be replaying twelve previous milestones that brought us up to this point, alternating with Dana as he counts down our twelve all-time most-played tracks. And then...well, we'll tell you more about that tomorrow. Warning: your radio is about to combust. Sunday night, 9 to Midnight Eastern, on the air in Syracuse at Spark WSPLJ-LP 103.3 and 93.7 FM, and on the web at sparksyracuse.org Don't miss this one!
