Talking Dorothy Parker with Malachy McCourt and John McDonagh of Radio Free Eireann.

I recently appeared on WBAI 99.5 FM New York to talk about Dorothy Parker with Malachy McCourt and John McDonagh.

The interview starts around 19:30 mark – and goes a good while (40 minutes) so grab a cup of coffee. I love hearing Malachy talk and he knew Dorothy! Time goes quickly when Malachy tells stories!

We also talk about Frank, and Malalchy’s own Algonquinish group of wits, The First Fridays club (Frank and Pete Hamill were in that too), and Malalachy’s gold smuggling days in India. Etc…!

My Interview on WFUV’s Cityscape

I did a 30-minute radio interview on WFUV Public Radio – (WFUV’S CITYSCAPE) – hope you’ll listen on a coffee break. 📻 I was joined by Kevin Fitzpatrick of The Dorothy Parker Society. (And host George Bodarky) It was so fun to tell this tangled tale together.

More than 53 years after her death, Dorothy Parker’s ashes were interred at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.

It’s a tale only our guests on this week’s Cityscape could tell well. Kevin C. Fitzpatrick is the head of the Dorothy Parker Society. He’s also a professional tour guide and author. He along with The New Yorker Writer, Laurie Gwen Shapiro, brought Parker’s cremains to the Bronx from Baltimore, where they had been interred at NAACP headquarters. It’s quite the story!
