Talking ‘The Alchemy of Noise’… After Hours with Rick Kogan

When I was in Chicago during “The Alchemy of Noise Book Launch Tour” in April, I had the great pleasure of meeting Rick Kogan, iconic Chicago Tribune writer and radio personality, in the wonderful setting of my dear friends—Jason Brett and Lauren Streicher‘s—home. A warm, welcoming man with a tremendous legacy in the beloved city of my birth, I was delighted when he invited me to join him on his radio show to talk about my book.

We’ll be having that conversation this Sunday night, June 23rd, 8:00pm PST/10:00pm CT, on the “After Hours with Rick Kogan Show / WGN 720 AM.

“The Voice of Chicago is back on The Voice of Chicago! Rick Kogan starts off your week with discussion, commentary and interviews with the people – writers, musicians, artists, characters, newsmakers – who make Chicago tick. 9-11 p.m., Sundays, WGN Radio 720 AM.”

“After Hours with Rick Kogan (9-11pm CT/WGN 720 AM) welcomes Mark Caro on his latest book, Behind the Laughter; Bonnie Koloc Singer/Songwriter on her songs; Lorraine Devon Wilke on her book, The Alchemy of Noise, and Tony Fitzpatrick with some bird loving pals to talk about the Montrose bird-concert controversy.”

Again, my segment starts at 8:00 pm PST/10:00 pm CT, but odds are good the entire show will be offer fascinating conversation! Here’s the link (my segment starts at the halfway point):

    1. Yikes… so you got that “test” email?? That was sent because subscribers have told me when they respond to the email that alerts them of a new post, it goes to my old AOL address that is no longer functional. I have tried every which way to update that subscription plug-in with my current and correct email address for this blog (, but so far no luck. Still working on it!

      But that test was to see if when I responded to the same email subscribers get, it went somewhere. It went to subscribers, apparently. Not intended!

      Anyway, I love your comment, I always love your comment, and if you ever email a response back to me from the RPM post, hopefully it will go where it’s supposed to!! xoxo

      P.S. I just removed that silly comment “test”! 🙂
