Marlon Cherry:
Now, this is not the musician by the same name from Norwich, U.K. The Marlon Cherry you hear lives and works in New York City, actively drums for national dance companies including Paul Taylor and Martha Graham, and is the subject of an upcoming Tourist In The City profile. You can reach the real Marlon Cherry by writing me; I'll forward it on to him directly.

The PodSquad

I'm really pleased to announce that TouristInTheCity is now a part of a network of podcasters based in the New York area, Since mid-April I've met most of the creative talent behind the several other podcasts in the NYC PodSquad network. I like many of the programs, which include music, talk, conjecture, business advice and eating. I invite you to sample them, too.
