KCSN Program Director (and all-around great guy) Martin Perlich conducts terrific in-person interviews at KCSN 88.5 FM weekday afternoons, 4 p.m., with a wide range of performers, authors and others of that ilk, but I didn't realize until a helpful tip that he also hosts a show called "The Audition Booth" which previews new releases of classical and roots music and welcomes composers or artists on the show to play and discuss their work. It airs weekdays at 2 p.m.

By the way, Martin's terrific book, The Art of the Interview, is available from Amazon.

You'll find New Angeles Monthly from Southland Publishing (LA CityBeat, Pasadena Weekly, etc. ) on the stands in June.

Did you know that you can get emailed a list of New York Times staff members who have made their e-mail addresses public? It'll be sent to you automatically in response to your e-mail to The list changes frequently, so it's a good idea to re-send periodically.

O, The Oprah Magazine has named Celia Barbour a contributing food editor.

Sounds like RealTalk LA, which is spotlighted in my last post, might not be long for this world, if online rumors prove true. Keep an eye on LA Observed or updates.
