9/2/2012 On the Air With Johnny Rabbitt – Two Weeks to Go

With just two weeks until my release-signing party, KMOX radio personality Johnny Rabbitt (Ron Elz) will interview me briefly by phone tonight around 9:40. It’s exciting to me because I used to listen to him on KXOK in the 60s.

We had a good time talking this afternoon at his home in St. Louis Hills when I dropped off a copy of the book. Johnny has German blood, too, so we had plenty to talk about.

One of the main things we’ll discuss tonight will be my release-signing party from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16 at the Feasting Fox, 4200 S. Grand Blvd.  Intrepid reporter that he is, he may also quiz me on the lederhosen I’ll wear at the party. Tune in to AM 1120 to hear it all.
