Douglas Brunt’s “The Ghosts of Manhattan” and the Hour of Entrepreneurs with Bobbi and Sid Page, Kevin Fagan and Steve Bjorkman

Email Email Print

Today’s program mixes some Christmas fun into a dreadful political season.

I often recommend non-fiction books and interview lots of authors of such works. But outside of thrillers –Vince Flynn, Daniel Silva, etc– and the occasional mystery writer like C.J. Box, I steer clear of novelists because it is hard to discuss a novel without giving away too much of the story. My on air pals like these three have long practice with me and we know how to avoid that cliff.

But I will give it a whirl today with a new guest, Douglas Brunt, about his Ghosts of Manhattan because the protrait the book draws of Wall Street finance is troubling but very entertaining, and the key question is whether it survived the crash.

Ghosts of Manhattan: A Novel

The third hour of today’s prgram is my monthly visit with entrepreneurs who are risking and thriving in a rotten economy. Because it is the season of art and music, I have asked four unusual business people to join me.

Two are musicians and two are artist-illustrators. Bobbi Page and Sid Page are great musicians with many callings but are together in the Dream Street Band and Kevin Fagan is the creator of the Drabble comic strip and Steve Bjorkman the illustrator of a hundred children’s books and thousands fo greeting cards. All four make their way selling their created work, and too often shows and segments that focus on entrepreneuers, even briefly, fail to see the businesses behind the artists we enjoy every day in a thousand ways. The Dream Street Band web site is here. Ralph Drabble and his whole family hang out here (and the new Christmas adventure A Drabble Family Christmas Tale is here). And Steve Bjorkman’s online home is here.

Their hour will be on at 8 PM EST/5 Pacific.
