On the Radio

If everything works out (barring car troubles and weather), I'll be on the Good Show this Sunday night (the 17th) to talk about my book's progress. I'll be on some time between 9pm and 11pm, but I don't have specifics. You can listen to KTCU live with this link. If you can't listen live, I believe the Good Show now posts podcasts of their shows.

Here is a book update:
I'm still working on the Get Up Kids chapter. Thanks to Nathan Ellis (Coalesce/Casket Lottery) for some great perspective on the Kansas/Missouri scene in the mid-to-late-90s. Still haven't interviewed the Pope brothers though. I don't know which chapter I'll tackle next. Maybe the Sunny Day Real Estate chapter or the Jimmy Eat World chapter.

So, here is a detailed chapter breakdown (bold=complete in rough draft form):

A Starting Point (aka, introductory chapter)
Dischord Records, Washington DC
Jawbox, Washington DC
Jawbreaker, San Francisco, CA
Sunny Day Real Estate, Seattle, WA
Braid, Champaign, IL
The Promise Ring, Milwaukee, WI
Hot Water Music, Gainesville, FL
The Get Up Kids, Kansas City, MO
At the Drive-In, El Paso, TX
Jimmy Eat World, Mesa, AZ
Pause (aka, epilogue chapter)

I love the book you're working on. If you ever need a little help with any of the Midwest stuff, I'm pretty familiar with the Detroit/Chicago scenes from 94 to the present and have a few people I can put you in touch with who have played in those scenes, from Pharoh's Golden Cup to Detroit's Magic Stick and the Shelter.

Drop me an email if you ever get to anything in the Mitten State.

I'd totally love to have you onboard, but I can't seem to find your e-mail address.

Here's mine (connect the spaces here):
