TEENAGE DRAG RACING IN 1960s LOS ANGELES
A PERSONAL ACCOUNT OF TEENAGE DRAG RACING IN EARLY-TO-MID 1960s LOS ANGELES I was a teenager in the early-to-mid 1960s in Los Angeles. In those days drag racing was a big part of my life.
MAKING A DRAMATIC PODCAST DURING QUARANTINE
MAKING A DRAMATIC PODCAST DURING THE QUARANTINE I make a dramatic podcast during the quarantine. By “dramatic podcast” I mean a drama with a script and actors and characters--what used to be called a radio drama, like “The Shadow”. Mine is called “MoonShot Mission X”. It’s a comic, retro-futuristic, sci-fi, story about a trip to the moon. There are eight characters, and eight actors. Aside from the characters created by the actors, and the host of the show who does an intro and outro, I do everything else. I write, direct, and edit, and compose the music. I manage the releases and the promotion.
In the mid-1950s I was a jumper for a milkman in Detroit--for about two years, from the age of fourteen to sixteen-years-old. I worked at it full-time in the summers, and every weekend when high school was in session.
