Last Saturday I did a half-hour segment on Belinda Skelton’s Atlanta Living (broadcast unavailable). And I also did a half-hour on Nevada Public Radio with Dave Becker via Skype (hence the incredibly clear recording). On Sunday I’ll be in the studio for an episode of TheListAreYouOnIt.com with Nycci Nellis. Then, on Tuesday, July 29, I will be speaking at RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, Connecticut. Hope to see my Nutmeggers there!
This morning I was up and at ‘em, beginning with Byers & Co. on News/Talk 1340 in Illinois. A couple hours later I did a lengthier segment on the Tommy Schnurmacher Show on CJAD 800 in Montreal, including questions from listeners. Also today, a rather thoughtful review of Vodka by Jeremy Lott in the Washington Times. (So good, he even likes the smell of the book—who says it’s odorless?)
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to talk about my book, Vodka: How a Colorless, Odorless, Flavorless Spirit Conquered America (Lyons Press) on The Steve Czaban Show. Gotta love the Czabe! And then I went on a program that is very much the opposite of the Czabe—The Bill Feingold Show on 94.3 FM out of Palm Springs, and that, too, was a riot. So thank you Steve, Solly, Bill, and Kevin Holmes for letting me plug the book on your shows!
It was a busy Fourth of July weekend: On Friday the Fourth, I went on Irish radio—Newstalk with host Sean Moncrieff (beginning at the 6:05 mark). My half-hour segment on The Sipping Point with the wonderful Laurie Forster was posted on Saturday. My lunch interview with Sonny Bunch of the Washington Free Beacon was also posted. (As I mentioned earlier, if only all my interviews could be conducted at Joe’s Seafood, Steak, & Stone Crab or at The Palm… ) And lastly, my boss William Kristol was kind enough to mention me and my colleague Daniel Halper (whose book Clinton, Inc. comes out on July 22) in Politico‘s Summer Reading List.
This week I had the pleasure of talking about my book, Vodka: How a Colorless, Odorless, Flavorless Spirit Conquered America (Lyons Press) with Jeff Schechtman on KVON in Napa and with the Brothers Rappaport on The Final Say. Thanks guys for having me on!
At the moment, Amazon is temporarily out of stock. But only temporarily! If you need it sooner (and who doesn’t?), please go to Barnes and Noble or great booksellers like RJ Julia and Politics and Prose.
