Celebrating National Poetry Month: a conversation and reading with poet and publisher of Dos Madre Press, Robert Murphy, about his new book, Among the Enigmas, with our Barbara Gray.

We were thrilled when Jay Bolotin dropped by the studio with his guitar the morning after his packed concert at Northside Tavern November 13th to talk with Elaine Diehl about his music career, artwork, and new cd release.  During their conversation, Jay talked about writing songs in his 20's, meeting Carl Solway in New York during the 1970s, and working on films. 

His show at Northside Tavern was his first in three years, and he was delighted that photographer Michael Wilson + family were in the house that night.  And at the end of their discussion, Jay also talked about Aralee Strange who was his best friend for 40 years.  His artwork is on the cover of the new Aralee book, The Road Itself.  At the end of the interview, he brought out his guitar (a 1936 Gibson) and performed one of the songs from the new album, "The Picture and the Frame."
