For David, an ex-broadcaster who married a broadcaster, the radio tour for Always Something Doing was a treat - a chance to catch up with old friends and meet some true radio legends. It began at WBZ, with former colleague and friend David Brudnoy, on whose show David would ultimate appear five times to promote various projects...
to WRKO, with another radio legend whom David engineered
broadcasts for six years, Jerry Williams.
Williams crusaded for the renaming of Government Center to Scollay Square, which took place in 1987.
Larry, how are you doing?" "Let me check..."
Yep, it's the one and only Larry Glick,
in his WHDH studios in Copley Place.
special interview with the amazing Marsha
Masters. Marsha, a dear friend, passed
away in 2003 but in 1992
was the morning host for one of Boston's great radio format experiments - "Show Biz Radio" WRCA.
used to be a local program on Channel 5 here in Boston
(back when TV stations did local
programs other than news) called "Good Day. Here, David is being interviewed live
in Scollay Square by Good Day's Ted Reinstein.
next day after the "Good Day!" interview was David's
very first book signing, at the
Walden Books at 2 Center Plaza, which was right across the street from where the Channel 5
interview had taken place. It was, according to the bookstore's staff, the biggest crowd ever
for a book signing. Timing - and location - truly are everything...
promise you that for an author there few thrills bigger
than seeing a first book on display.
Several months after the above tour, while in Boston, I found mine next to Whitehill's "Topographical
History" in the Old State House bookstore window. Wow.
