Radio Ga-Ga

Got an email out of the blue Thursday morning from KNX Radio reporter John Baird wanting to interview me about tomorrow’s CicLAvia. I said sure. So he came over and we stood on the front porch for a few minutes talking about the event.

Then I lucked into catching a repeat broadcast of it on my audio recorder tonight. Here I am — and yeeeeessss this wincing gringo now knows I’m pronouncing “CicLAvia” wrong. It’s Cee-cla-VEE-ah, not Cee-CLA-vee-ah. Hint: Think “Pancho Villa.”

This is probably an abbreviated secondary version of the initial feature.

Mispronunciation aside, I’m pleased to have been able to help spread the word, and I’m so looking forward to the event tomorrow.

The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue.
