Warren Zevon’s “Werewolvesof London” always gets a play when I do a Halloween show on WSBU-FM 88.3 the Buzz.
This year, because Halloween is on a Wednesday and my show is on Thursdays, I won’t be doing a Halloween program. But I will be playing “Werewolves” and plenty of other Zevon songs as part of the “Talk to Me” series I am doing for this semester’s radio programs. Each week, I am devoting my one-hour show to music and stories about the recording artists I interviewed when I covered rock’n’roll in the early 1980s.
I interviewed Zevon in 1982 at a hotel in New Jersey, where he was staying while doing a couple of concerts in the area. “The Envoy,” his fifth studio album, has just been released.
We had a very pleasant and interesting conversation, which began and ended with a discussion of where Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) was located. To hear that story and others, as well as some of my favorite Warren Zevon compositions, log on to player.listenlive.co/37351 Thursday at 3 p.m.
