All-Night Radio was a Riot in New York on the "Age of Obama" Book Tour!

What a wild night in New York City on my book tour. I wound up staying late on the "Joey Reynolds Show" on WOR Radio 710-AM. If you missed the broadcast, check and look for the show archives.

Anyway, I just had to see more of New York, so I ate at "Maison," a great little French bistro near my hotel in the Broadway district. It was great. At the same time, they were paving 7th Avenue and Broadway the last two nights of my stay, and midtown Manhattan was in gridlock. I finally got out of my cab--as it was going nowhere--and walked the final four blocks to my hotel.

After dinner I walked down to Times Square because I wanted to take some pictures. It was around 2:30 in the morning, but I did not care. This book tour really has energized me.

It was a fun night in New York, especially on KOA. I want to thank host Joey Reynolds and his producer Myra Chanin for having me on. They have asked me to come back and be on the show again next time I am in New York. They also introduced me to Rick Barber, the all-night host from KOA radio in Denver. Rick is going to have me on his show from Denver when he gets back from vacation. All in all, it was a great trip; but I am heading back to the Bay Area tonight.

Up All Night in the City that Doesn't Sleep

(New York, New York)

It's 3 a.m., and I am still up in "the city that never sleeps!" I am exhausted, but at the same time I am exhilarated. Thus--despite a few glasses of wine--insomnia.

I was on the "Joey Reynolds Show" on WOR Radio 710, one of the oldest, most storied radio stations in America. Joining me with Joey (see photo) were longtime New York pundits Jerry Corsi, author of "The Obama Nation," and Jones Harris, son of Academy Award winning actress Ruth Gordon. It was a pretty feisty two hours. (It was taped to air at 3 to 5 a.m. Eastern Time.)

Then Joey invited me to stay for part of the live broadcast, which began at midnight. We were joined by, "The Bobs," an a cappella singing group from California, and by longtime Denver talk show host Rick Barber from KOA, who was visiting New York.

It was a fun night. There were many jokes about the length of my book title. It is "Age of Obama: A Reporter's Journey with Clinton, McCain and Obama in the Making of the President 2008." On the show, I explained why the title is so long! Anyway, check the archives at
