I love radio, particularly news radio. The interviews, analysis, call-ins about issues in the news, local or national are all great, and what I listen to while I work. My favorite station is the New York City station WNYC, and in particular the afternoon show, The Leonard Lopate Show. I also like the Brian Lehrer Show in the mornings, too. The station loves New Yorker cartoonists, and have had them on the show numerous times over the years. I have done a lot of radio, usually connected to any new books I have. But I have never been invited to be on WNYC….until now. I was very lucky to be asked to be a guest on the Leonard Lopate Show to talk about my book, Women On Men, with guest host Anna Sale. It was great fun– Anna is a skilled interviewer with a devilish streak and great sense of humor. One New York friend said to me when she heard that I was to be on WNYC, “You’re really famous now!” Such is a true New York attitude.
Here is the interview (with a slide show of my cartoons!):
Love it. I’m with you; nothing beats being on the radio with a great interviewer.
