I was a guest on the "Citywide" radio program on WNYU (89.1 FM and on wnyu.org) tonight. Well, actually we pre-recorded the half-hour show last week. The show is hosted by Lucas Green, currently an NYU student who I met in March when I played and spoke at Prof. Antonia Lant's silent cinema class there. Lucas hosts this show, and wanted to have me on the program.
