Just did an hour long radio interview for the Peter Moses show on WVOX, 1460 AM, in Westchester County. Talked about The Kennedy Connection and also a lot about the tabloid newspaper business. Peter was a reporter at the Post in the 80s when I was city editor of the NY Post. It was a wild and crazy and wonderful time, and Peter somehow managed to remember the one time he said I yelled at him. (for not answering a pager promptly). Really enjoyed doing the interview.
