The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit Show - A musical mid-life crisis -- a late-night search for meaning and happiness airs on WRIR LP Monday nights from 9 PM to 11 PM. Stream the show @
Hey Listeners,

The title of tonight’s show refers to a book I’m reading about the music of NYC from 1927 – 1977 written by Tony Fletcher. I’m fascinated about the music this city has produced and have done several shows about it. I have a long way to go on this book so tonight I’ll just have one set inspired by the first couple of chapters.

The title of tonight’s show could also refer to my upcoming vacation. I’m ready to be gone for a few weeks and Zak will be hosting the next three Mondays. But lots on tap for tonight so keep it tuned here.
