Tune in July 1!
This Sunday July 1 at 9 pm EST (6 pm PST) I'm a featured guest on "Inquiry" on 90.5 WICN, a public radio station in Boston/New England, and you can go to their web site and listen in. (Or tune in, if you're in the area)
From the WICN website:
Inquiry struts down the catwalk this week with two conversations devoted to fashion. First, Ali Basye takes us through the ups, downs, and ever-quirky designs of the skirt; from hobbles to poodles, to the mini, midi, and maxi. Then Cheree Berry uncovers the amusing history of the brassiere with her brand new, you guessed it, pop-up history book. At 9 p.m. Inquiry talks with fashion and travel writer Ali Basye about the ups, the downs and the ever-quirky design of the skirt. From panniers to bustles, from hobbles to poodles, the mini, the midi, the maxi and even the micro-mini, Ali talks about them all in her book "The Long and Short of It: The Madcap History of the Skirt."
The caveat is you need to download Radio 365 to listen but I think it might be a pretty interesting show so it's worth it, right? Seriously, this interview (recorded last month) was one of my better ones, primarily because the host Mark Lynch was really engaged and asked interesting questions. He actually read the book and even better: He liked it! I myself am looking forward to hearing how the segment shaped up--should be a fun one!
