Creating a buzz in Hudson

Posted By on May 27, 2007

Seems I’m generating some buzz in Hudson for my book, Cleveland Rock & Roll Memories. The reason is a local TV show, “Good Day in Hudson,” which airs over Hudson Cable TV. A few weeks ago, I traveled to Hudson, an upscale community south of Cleveland, for a 20-minute interview with Frank Youngwerth, the show’s genial host (see the clip here )

Frank, an older gentleman who fondly recalls the very early days of rock ‘n’ roll, focused on legendary Cleveland disc jockeys like Alan Freed ( and Bill Randle. But he also allowed me to stretch out and drop a gang of other rock names.

The video’s been airing for a while now and will again before my appearance at the Learned Owl, a Hudson bookstore and gathering place for local literati. I’m signing my book there between 2 and 3 p.m. June 9.

Thank God for local TV. And local bookstores.
