- Who is Another Old Guy?
I've loved music since I was a child. I worked at a radio station in summer camp when I was 11, became obsessed with music in my teens and had the privilege to work at WPRB-FM when I was in college. But rather than follow that passion, I became and continue to be an attorney.
A few years ago, I started writing about music for Star Maker Machine (as J. David), and then for Cover Me.
Now, I've decided to start my own blog, to write about music, television, politics and whatever.
