Light On Light Through


You'll hear a little of this and lot of that on Light On Light Through - my reviews of great television series, my interviews with authors and creative media people and their interviews of me, my political commentary, thoughts about my favorite cars and food and space travel, discussions of my music, and a few of my readings from my science fiction stories. These are usually audio and a few are video.  In the first years, starting in 2006, I put up a new episode at least once a month.  More recently, it's become more or less often than once a month, usually a lot less often.  But now, in the Fall of 2018, I'm getting more in the mood to podcast, and you can expect new episodes at least once a month.  - Paul Levinson

Four Imus Fallacies ... Welcome to Episode 30 of Light On Light Through in which we consider four fallacies that have been bandied about the media regarding the firing of Imus from his television and radio shows, which was well-deserved ... the language of rap ... the Duke lacrosse players ... Anne Coulter, Rosie O'Donnell, and other celebrities who traffic in insult ... the First Amendment ... I'll explain why none of those issues or people have relevance to Imus ...

Plus flashes ... freed British sailors have every right to sell their stories to the media ... O'Reilly and Rivera knew just what they were doing when they lost their tempers on television ...

And a special treat ... a new home demo from England's James Harris ... Walking On Air ...

Hi Paul,
Great piece on the Imus bruha, I\\\'m about to take a listen to the podcast and call it a night.
Just wanted to say hi and FIGHT THE POWER! :) Oh yeah, look for a friend request from Kayaro Records and stay in touch, want to talk to you about some of those songs of yours, might want to give some of them a \\\'07 remix!
