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 and movies, my interviews with authors and creative media people and their interviews of me, my media theory and 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. In the first years, starting in 2006, I put up a new episode at least once a month.  More recently, it became more or less often than once a month, usually less often.  But in the Summer of 2020, I began getting more in the mood to podcast, and on 17 October 2023, I began publishing a new episode of the podcast every Tuesday at 12:01 pm -- a minute after Noon (New York time).  - Paul Levinson

Welcome to Light On Light Through, Episode 89, which contains Patrick Rands and Carl Thien's recent "spotlight" on my science fiction and music, broadcast a few days ago on Patrick's WZBC Radio show.   Patrick decided to do this segment after hearing Sundial Symphony's new recording of my "Looking for Sunsets (in the Early Morning)".   He put together a wild, cool set of my music over the years, and began by inviting Carl to talk about my science fiction.


The playlist follows.  More about Sundial Symphony - consisting of Don Frankel (who played keyboard on the 1972 recording of Looking for Sunsets) and Robbie Rist (cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch, the bus driver on Sharknado, and everything in between) - on their Facebook page.
