Gave a 90-minute interview today with a radio show in NYC called ARRVLS. It went very well, and it should be out in a few months.

They work closely with "This American Life," so I'm hoping for some cross-over.

I also contacted an old buddy, Art Silverman, the former Exec Producer of All things Considered. He was the best friend of a friend of mine from the freshman dorms at college. We all traveled to Florida together on our first Spring Break in '68.

Also sent a p.r. off to Terry Gross at Fresh Air, along with an apology. I got to see her "A Night With" in Seattle several years ago by flashing my press pass. I promised the theater staff I would write a piece on the shin-dig in the Mountain News, but I never did. I just crapped out. I did that a few times. Also did it at Liane Hansen of Weekend Edition at KPLU. I still have a few people to apologize for that one.  Sigh.....

But I did write up my interview with Arlo Guthrie, and also Linda Ronstadt. So I'm two for four, ethically. I think that might keep me out of Hell, but Heaven might be a little iffy at this point....better tell my cardio guy I need more time...

No, it was a Google Voice thingy, and I had to call in, so I guess I'm on the hook at  five cents a minute...hmmm. 90 x 5 equals....I'll have to get back to you.

Georger!  Help!!!

Fame cost me $4.50 today!

Better sell a couple books! Speaking of which, I've sold six this month, but one guy asked for and received a refund...I wonder who? Maybe the guy who posted a review and then took it down...

Also, four folks read the book from the Amazon Library, which is where the Oregonian guy Stuart Tomlinson said he was gonna go because my proof review copy is a bit too shiny.

I thought you were talking about a new review. I was just joking when I said that because that's the first thing that popped into my head  :D I now see that Robert has taken down his review. what was the reason, nobody hit yes for the comment being helpful, or you didn't sign up to his forum?

Well, he can't be calling himself Cooper Royalty because that is other people.  But, if it's like the Berlin Wall, maybe he's just behind the Cooper curtain.

Book Update.

I pitched the Sheridan Peterson story to Parachutist Magazine since they got an intro to Petey with Mooshie's piece in 2011. They are very supportive of my book and will run some kind of announcement in the June issue, but they indicated they've had enough of the Eagle-Eyed One, and Cooper, too, surprisingly. Their words were, "...remember this is a general interest skydiving magazine..."

Maybe they'd go for a piece on Robb?  Hmmmm.

Making the rounds with the book announcement: NPR, Fresh Air, This American Life, all the local newspapers, NY Times Seattle desk, Clyde and Ground Zero, C2C, all the local TV stations. Feels good to be back in the saddle and ridin' hard.
