Burl would be the first to agree!
"Yes, I agree," barked Barer dogmatically while watering his legend. "Buy Betrayal in Blue...and buy it over and over again as if it were the best 3.5 grams of anything anywhere you ever purchased."
Remember, when you buy Burl Barer's books, between 8.5% and 45% of the sale price goes directly to Burl Barer's pocket -- of course, he pays his co-authors their fair share.
In his younger days, Burl didn't use co-authors. Now, he is a lazy old guy who just wants to sit with his slippers and his pipe --- Burl doesn't own any slippers-- and he broke his only pipe when in a fit of paranoia he threw it away while riding the plastic pony in front of Albertson's -- he thought the elephant was after him for smoking outside where 2nd and 3rd hand tobacco smoke is dissipated and smog will kill you but we mustn't regulate clean air and water.
This Saturday is Xmas Eve and the first night if Chanukah...the two holidays have nothing to do with each other. Chanukah (or Hannukah) is not the Jewish Christmas just as Christmas is not the Christian celebration of Ramadan. All meat from the same bone, just different complimentary breeds.
What about New Year's Eve? Good question. We will come up with something... Our first show in January marks the return of Patrick E Craig, my first co-host on the Walla Walla Highool Radio show on KTEL-AM recorded in my basement. Pat became a rock star, songwriter, bon vivant, music pastor at many a shocked and stunned protestant church. Then on a dare, he wrote an Amish novel...and BAM!
The guy has one hit after another! He's back with a new one that is a cool mashup of Amish characters and a classic western vibe.
