At the risk of coming across like a self-important ass, I am going to make this year’s final Saratoga blog post a “best of” of sorts. I’ll provide links in this space to my favorite posts from this year.
The immediate future of the blog is a little unclear. I’ll definitely be posting links to the files from my recent radio tribute to my dad soon. I may opt to do a “Race of the Week” type preview on here, I may wait until the Breeders’ Cup to be more active, we’ll just ahve to see. As you might imagine, there is a backlog of freelance editorial work that needs dealing with.
I do plan on starting a blog for the new Rolling Stones book that will be both about the Stones but also hopefully about my Dad and old WNEW. That’s going to live over here. I’ll pass along more deets when I have them.
