The Dean of American Rock Critics
I had the privilege to work with Robert Christgau in 2001. I produced his radio program "The Dean's List" that ran weekly on The Voice. The Voice was an internet radio station I co-developed for New York City's own Village Voice.
Every week Robert would enter my studio and turn me on to some really great music. For each show Robert would have a theme of some sort, country, hip-hop, bluegrass, African, really old scratchy blues, and occasionally rock and roll. Producing this show with Robert was like going to school every week. I learned so much in such a short period of time. Aside from the world blowing up sixteen or so blocks away from our office, 2001 was one of the best years of my life partly because I got to hang out and talk music with The Dean of American Rock Critics, Robert Christgau.
Recently I discovered some promos Robert recorded for his show. They are each about twenty seconds in length and you'll hear Robert answer questions about...what else...music.
