Guys. GUYS. I’m going to be on WNPR on Monday. On the Colin McEnroe show. On the radio.
I will be on the air with three other CT authors: Chandra Prasad, Brian Slattery and Lucy Ferriss.
We will be talking about the future of the novel with McEnroe, who is himself an author, at 1 p.m. on Monday, and folks, it’s a call-in show. This is the number: (860) 275-7266. Call in. Ask lots of questions. The show airs on WPNR-FM 90.5 in Connecticut, but if you don’t live here, that’s okay, you can listen live (or listen to the file later) by going here.
UPDATE: If you miss the 1 p.m. show, a rerun will air at 8 p.m. Thanks to Betsy from WNPR for letting me know.
I’m going to be honest; I’m a little nervous to be on a panel with these authors. They’re all extremely accomplished. But I’m also excited; I can’t wait to talk with them about writing in general and the novel in particular.
For those of you who are not from Connecticut, Colin McEnroe is kind of a big deal. He was on AM radio when I was growing up and he must have been on at a time when I was home from in school, because his was one of the voices I heard daily.
I could go on and on, but I will make a long story short: in 2009, McEnroe moved to WNPR, which is one of CT’s NPR affiliates. He’s got a show that runs from 1 to 2 p.m. weekdays, and that’s the one I will be on Monday. He’s great to listen to; he’s a wit and he’s smart as hell and opinionated as a radio host ought to be. I once read a piece that described him as “The Hunter Thompson of Connecticut Journalism.” I don’t know if that’s really the case, but I aim to find out.
So guys, listen, call in. Tweet about it. It’s going to be fantastic.
Congrats!! You will be brilliant. Very happy for you.
Thank you, MAJK! I’ll have to practice my radio voice on the podcast this weekend.
This is FANTASTIC! I have to work when the show is on, but I will definitely check out the file afterward. I can’t wait to listen.
Thank you! I am so excited; I will post the file when it’s up!
I forgot to tell AJ but there is a rerun of the Colin McEnroe Show every night at 8:00 pm. So, if you can’t hear it live at 1…
Hi Betsy. Thank you for letting us know! I will be sure to update with that information! See you tomorrow.
