Ed Moses on KCRW

leave a comment »

I’m a proud member of KCRW, the Santa Monica National Public Radio station.  I’ve spent many an hour in my car, hanging on every word of Morning Edition during a national crisis. I’ve become addicted to This American Life, and I’ve often marveled at the cogent summation of a Supreme Court decision, as told by Nina Totenberg. Who can top the interview ability of Terry Gross? As the NPR site states: “Though Fresh Air has been categorized as a “talk show,” it hardly fits the mold. Its 1994 Peabody Award citation credits Fresh Air with “probing questions, revelatory interviews and unusual insights.” Then, of course there is always the role of KCRW as tastemaker for new music. That keeps me young.

Last year, for professional support, we sponsored a few underwriting “spots” and let people know about our exhibit of Robert Graham’s work. It was the most meaningful advertising support that we’ve ever made.  But for personal excitement, I’ve hardly had more thrills than today, when Ed Moses was interviewed on KCRW.

Veteran station manager Ruth Seymour took a special interest in Moses’ exhibit at the gallery, and came to see it last Saturday. Ms. Seymour and KCRW art critic Edward Goldman talked with Moses today for a full half hour. She conducted a superb interview with Ed, and the painter extended his reputation as an outspoken legend. Because of the station’s generous use of technology, we can offer it to you here.
