“The Frame,” KPCC’s “daily report from the world of art, entertainment, and culture,” had me on as a guest today to talk about Louis Armstrong and the West Coast premiere of Satchmo at the Waldorf. The host, John Horn, had gone to see the first preview of Satchmo on Tuesday and was fabulously well prepared—something that just doesn’t always happen, even on public radio. He asked consistently smart and thoughtful questions, and I in turn did my very best to supply reasonably worthy answers.
KPCC broadcasts to the Los Angeles area, but no matter where you live, you can listen to the ten-minute segment, or download it as a podcast, by going here.

If you live in the New York area, CUNY-TV’s Theater Talk has a new episode in the pipeline in which Ben Brantley, Peter Marks, John Simon, and I chew over the Broadway season just past with co-hosts Susan Haskins and Michael Riedel. The fun starts on Sunday, June 7, at seven p.m. ET.
