Even after getting my second Moderna shot, we’re still practicing a little bit of patience and moderate quarantining. It doesn’t make any sense at all to rush out like lemmings into the vast, teeming crowd of unvaccinated unbelievers before it’s truly safe to do so.
So, in the meantime, I’ve turned my attention to some creative endeavors that can be done from home. And one of these is writing and producing short audio podcasts. I figured, if everyone else on the internet can do them, why not me? After all, I’ve got plenty of material from years and years of living. And even a few gems saved up in the sound bites library from earlier days in broadcasting.
So, I dusted off my old reporter’s hat, and dived in head-first to cranking out a few productions that hopefully will entertain people while we’re all still waiting for the world to return back to normal again.
My podcast series is “A Look Behind In Rewind,” and it focuses on nostalgia, memories, pleasant recollections of past adventures, and even some whimsical re-telling of stories from all the different people and places I’ve encountered through the years.
So far, the collection includes an interview with Dick Clark; stories about “Elevator Characters,” “If You Can’t Sing Like The Beatles,” “The Game Show Disaster,” “Moo School,” and the latest one, “Safari in Suburbia.” They’re all fairly brief, about 8-10 minutes apiece in length.

For any of you originally from the greater New York City area, these podcasts were done as a way of paying homage to one of my favorite radio personalities from the past, Jean Shepherd of WOR Radio. So if they seem somewhat reminiscent of his storytelling style, that was totally intentional. Enjoy!
