Episode 154 - Geoff Edgers

For our first in-person but appropriately distanced conversation since COVID hit, we were fortunate to sit with fellow Bostonian, author, documentary filmmaker and National Arts reporter for the Washington Post, Geoff Edgers.

We first came to know Geoff at a book signing of his recent book Walk This Way - Run-DMC, Aerosmith, and the Song that Changed American Music Forever. Since then we kept seeing Geoff around town – at David Byrne's American Utopia show in Boston, in Quincy - the Quincy Jones documentary and once when he tried to steal my original pressing of The Kinks - Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) LP.

That last one was a joke, but he is a huge Kinks fan and we are still hoping to watch his documentary about trying to reunite the Kinks called Do It Again. We sat in his backyard to talk current events, his continued hope for a Kinks reunion and his crazy awesome collection of tape decks, record players, 8 tracks and his personal favorite, his Welltron 2001.
