*Carter Alan and I have been partners-in-crime since 1977,
when we were co-hosts of the legendary (and still rocking)
Late Risers Club on WTBS/WMBR, Cambridge
We both made it into the the major league as air-staff members
 of the equally storied 104 FM WBCN and remain involved with radio, 
the Boston music scene and each other 40 years later!

Carter is also a prolific and talented author, his newest book being
The Decibel Diaries - a wonderful journey through rock in 50 concerts.

During his visit to RFW, he reads us a passage detailing 
the radio lead-up to an infamous 1978 show at The Rat, a hash pipe, 
an early import single and a hilarious "you can't do that on the air" moment!

Rock on, my brother!
