Recorded some weeks ago, I held on to this gem, not knowing why... until Saturday, when Chuck Berry passed. Old pal, Steve Conte, who's got one of the greatest rock voices of all time (he was Paul Simon's vocal stand-in for years) has played with just about everyone throughout his career, has a classic Berry story, which he shares here. Time has come today.

Steve’s first road gig, was touring with Blood Sweat & Tears in the mid-80s, right around the time I began booking him on Bleecker Street in NY. From there Steve played with J. Geils Band frontman Peter Wolf, the beforementioned Chuck Berry, toured with Billy Squier, Willy Deville, Eric Burdon, was a member of reformed New York Dolls and has shared the stage with an innumerable number of his heroes from Sam Moore, to Springsteen. Steve’s been writing for, recording and touring with former Hanoi Rocks frontman Michael Monroe for the past six years, supporting Guns & Roses, The Foo Fighters and Motorhead.

Steve's solo debut, The Steve Conte NYC Album, included a tune, OK DJ, which earned him the #2 Coolest Song of the Year, behind Bruce Springsteen, on Little Steven's Underground Garage... members of the Foo Fighters, Alice Cooper, Mott The Hoople, The Wallflowers, , Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, to name a few, joined Steve on the album.

But, it’s Steve’s own "covers" album, International Cover-Up. currently enjoying much airplay on Little Steven's Underground Garage and the opening track, "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight" which was voted #5 Coolest Song Of The Year, behind The Monkees and Ian Hunter, which signals what will no doubt be the solo recognition he’s long deserved.

Check it. Check him.

I left the studio for the first time to sit down with Academy Award-winning writer/director, Peter Bogdanovich. Wouldn't you? Time flew during our intimate conversation. So much so that this will be another first... a two-parter. He could've talked all night and I would have still wanted more. I knew about The Last Picture Show, What's Up Doc, Mask, and Paper Moon... there's so much more I didn't know. A master class which feels like easy entertainment. This will go down as one of my life's great memories. Thrilled to be sharing it with youes.
So grateful to Stacey Souther for running remote sound and making this possible.

One the most delightful conversations I've ever had... Nancy Allen​ is as adorable to chat with as she is to behold. A fellow Bronx girl––kindred spirit, she went to the school I coveted––there's a story!

Nancy’ first film was The Last Detail with Jack Nicholson’s date… what a way to start a career… from there she went on to Carrie, coupled with John Travolta, who she reteamed with in Blow Out. Dressed to Kill earned her a Golden Globe Nomination. And,, Nancy was nominated for Saturn Best Actress Awards for The Philadelphia Experiment and Robo Cop. Another dozen-plus movies followed, plus appearances on television on The Commish, Judging Amy and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit to name a few.

Nancy serves as executive director of the weSPARK Cancer Support Center. It's now her life's work. One of our Women Who Write sisters recently found great comfort there. What an inspiration!

We had so much fun. Promise it'll be contagious.
