Patt Morrison and All Saints Church

I'm making another Lo-Cal swing in June, and I'm pleased to add two more events to that trip: a conversation with Patt Morrison (KPCC, 89.3) and a talk at All Saints Church in Pasadena, both on June 16. Patt Morrison and All Saints Pasadena are two very impressive Southern California institutions. (See and for details on their efforts and achievements.)


Rothmann Show Tonight

I'll appear on John Rothmann's show tonight on KGO (810 AM) at 1:00 a.m. to discuss Carey McWilliams and American Prophet. We should have a lot to talk about. Rothmann worked on Nixon's 1968 campaign, and McWilliams followed Nixon's career closely if unsympathetically. Rothmann is also interested in the Jewish experience in America, which McWilliams treated in Brothers Under the Skin and A Mask for Privilege.

Next Radio Gig

Just received an invitation to appear on KGO's John Rothmann show to talk about Carey McWilliams and American Prophet. The show is scheduled for Sunday, April 30, at 1:00 a.m. That's cutting pretty deep into the cocktail hour, but duty calls. If you're up late that Saturday night, give it a shot at 810 on the AM dial.
