This coming Monday from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am I will be on the national radio show Coast to Coast with host George Noory 600 am in San Diego. Coast to Coast has the largest audience of any late night talk show. Part of the reason for this is that George is not afraid to have controversial guests on the show. George also is an astute interviewer and has a sense of the larger purpose of the show, which is not just to entertain but to take on serious topics and allow his listeners to voice their opinions with call in questions that range from the absurd to the absurdly astute. I am looking forward to our three hours together and hope the late night owls among you will stay up and see what George has in store for us. Those of you on the east coast who are not likely to be up from 2:00 to 5:00 a.m. might think about listening to the broadcast on your own schedule by going to the Coast to Coast web site where all the shows are archived.
With the publication of my novel The Power of Twelve this week I have been doing lots of radio shows. This morning was New Orleans, last night Cleveland, the day before Florida. I am enjoying the radio shows and most of the hosts are asking me to come back. Although the primary topic is The Power of Twelve, the specific topics and questions are far ranging. A caller from Cleveland wanted to know what I thought about the French structural anthropologist Claude Levi Strauss. The host wanted to know what it was like working with Rod Serling. Other callers were interested in learning what I knew about George W. Bush and his relationship to Yale’s secret society of Skull and Bones. I have opinions and knowledge on all of these topics and it is fun to have such a diverse range of questions. Either directly or indirectly, all of these topics are actually related to the novel.
