The latest episode of When You Play It, Say It! is available to stream on Mixcloud. This one is a particular treat for Long Island City folks as I sat down and talked to our beloved doo-wop singer and raconteur, Tom Kelleher, better known as T.K. We had a great talk about learning how to sing harmony under the street lamps in Astoria in the 1950, writing songs about teenage break ups, our differing opinions of the Eagles, and how disco made people drink bad cocktails.
With tongue only slightly planted in cheek, Roger refers to himself as a Raconteur simply for lack of a better term.
Having his Bachelor’s degree in theatre, and his Master’s in Media Studies, Roger’s writing includes theatrical works as well as pieces of music and cultural criticism. He has contributed to several websites including The Huffington Post, The Waster, while maintaining own blog.
He recently created a music/culture CloudCast entitled When You Play It Say It. He is also available for voice over work.
Roger prefers staples to paperclips, vinyl to CDs, Moogs to ARPs, Coke to Pepsi, Diet Pepsi to Diet Coke, Star Wars to Star Trek, The Who to The Stones, and writing letters to making phone calls.
