Macy's Thanksgiving Parade

Hi, it's me, Andy, your tourist in the city. Do you listeners know how much time it takes to produce a 14 minute podcast of Tourist In The City?

It takes about 20 hours of editing time, post-recording. And I work 70 to 80 hours a week. And that work is underwriting Tourist In The City. And I know Thanksgiving was four days ago!!!

So any time I'll have the first installment of our Macy's Day Thanksgiving recordings.

In the meantime, write me a note. Yep, you can do it.

Love you!


PS --> I came back to this blog with the breakthrough information that I am the Super Grand Prize award winner of the Overnightscape Extreme Competition. Alright, I made up that title; I won a quiz on the podcast "Overnightscape", OK? You can all about the tiebreaker and the full announcement here: (episode_0336.mp3)

its coming

these posts take so much time! I've already clocked 5 hours of editing and have so much further to go. In the meantime, my arrangements are made for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, also known as the macy's parade, and macy's day parade. I begin today with a recording of Clown Camp, the once-a year training in professional clowning for the hundreds of volunteer parade clowns....

In the meantime, here's a link to a new podcast I found by another New Yorker, Jason, who I don't know but I expect I'll meet at the New York Podcasters Association. It's called GOTHAMCAST. Like Tourist In The City, Jason looks for slices of New York's big apple pie in the sky, but, it's a different spice: Tourist use more nutmeg and brown sugar, and I think Gothamcast has extra Cinnamin. For some reason, they're tasty together.

nasty HALLOWEEN in the olde village

In its third decade, the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade is traditionally sexy, grotesque and inventive. Anyone in a costume can march, and many of the creative homemade costumes cost hundreds of dollars and hours and hours of time to construct. In a few days I'll have my recording of the Parade on post.

On December 10 I'll be inagurating a second podcast, SNOWBARK, devoted to invention, creativity and music of emerging artists.

So, see you in a few days with Snowbark's HALLOWEEN.
