On the Mark Erie Times-News ShowCase, 6 July, 2006

Happy 230th, America.
As any regular listener to NPR can tell you, musician, writer, radio personality, anthologist and social observer David Greenberger is good company. Lately, I’ve been keeping company with his new CD, “1001 Real Apes,” a recording of a piece that Greenberger and Boston’s Birdsongs of the Mesozoic played in Erie in 1998.
My review of the CD will be running soon in the Erie Times’s ShowCase entertainment tab, and I don’t want to tip my hand (hint, it’ll be laudatory), but you should hear this. “How Records Are Made,” a selection from the CD is available here.
See it, too: the cover art, by the way, was assembled from rocks found at local artist Brian Pardini’s beach cottage in Lake City.
It’s Canada Day, the national holiday of our very good neighbor to the north. Photo credit to my eight-year-old daughter who shot this at noon today.
