Two Announcements

Book Signing And Reading

The Checker Car Club of America will be having its annual convention in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, this weekend. On Friday, June 20th, there will be over 40 Checkers, some going back to the 1920s, on display at a free public event from 3 p.m. to sunset.

On Saturday, for a fee of $25, you can also participate in an assortment of activities intended to rehabilitate your love for the iconic Checker taxicab (remember the jump seats?) as well as dine at a banquet starting at 7 p.m. where, now hear this, you can get the book Confessions Of A New York Taxi Driver signed by its author and listen to the guy read a story or two from his book.

I mean, wow!

For more information click on www.checker2014.com.

If you’re interested in the Saturday events and the banquet, contact George Laszlo, the convention’s director, at 201-206-0990.

p.s. This will be the first time the convention’s going to be held in New York in 20 years. No telling when it will be here again.


On The Radio Tomorrow

I will be the guest for the full hour on a weekly show called “The World Of Work” with host Shep Cohen on public radio WDVR FM 89.7, this Friday, June 20th, from 4 to 5 p.m.

WDVR broadcasts in the central and southern parts of New Jersey as well as the Philadelphia area. We’ll be discussing my book, the world of the taxi driver, and God knows what else.

For more information about the station and its broadcast range, go to www.wdvrfm.org.

I hope you’ll be able to tune in. Should be interesting.

On The Radio In NYC Tomorrow

I am thrilled and honored to announce that I will be a guest on The Leonard Lopate Show tomorrow (Monday, May 19).

Here are the details:
it’s on the public radio station WNYC - 93.9 on the FM dial, 820 on the AM dial - live from noon to 2:00 pm, and is rebroadcast from midnight to 2:00 am. My segment will run from 1:30 to 1:50. You can also hear it on your computer or device at wnyc.org. Or you can hear it anytime in the future by going to the archives of the Leonard Lopate Show in the WNYC website.

This is going to be a special treat for me because Leonard Lopate’s voice has been a passenger in my taxi for quite some time. I listen to the rebroadcast every night that I’m on the road. The wide variety of types of people who appear on his program, his well-informed questions, and his good-natured humor have made him one of the most respected talk show hosts in the USA. And he’s been on the air since 1977 - the same year I started driving a cab!

I hope you’ll be able to catch the show tomorrow or, if not, by clicking on the link above to find it in the Leonard Lopate Show archives.

I thought I was looking at what was left after a serious accident, but it turns out it was a prop in a movie.
