McWilliams Tribute on KPCC

I came upon a radio tribute to Carey McWilliams on KPCC (89.3 FM) in Pasadena. It aired last October in a segment called "Off-Ramps." Short and solid. Fanatical readers of this blog will recall that Patt Morrison also interviewed me last year about McWilliams on her KPCC show.

The KPCC website also has a great picture of him. It's a Will Connell photograph, evidently from the same session that produced the cover photo for American Prophet, but it's a little cooler than that one. McWilliams is looking directly at the camera, the dark tones are more saturated, and you can see the smoke coming off of his cigarette, all of which adds up to a noir-like image. I wish I'd seen this one earlier.

Here's the link. To listen to the segment, click on it and scroll down to "SoCal Visionary." There's also a link to McWilliams's Wikipedia page, which I've worked over pretty hard.

That is such a great picture. It really captures him, doesn't it?
