I am not old, but middle-aged; not grey, though too many hairs are fading that way; and not feline, but a decidedly flawed human. I’m a middle-aged white guy with catholic tastes, in other words, a product of my times but not a prisoner of them. (While I subscribe to the George Santayana aphorism that “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” I also believe that those who only look in the rearview mirror are sure to drift into the median strip.) I launched this blog as occasional essays on the Hatboro-Horsham Patch in February 2012 and moved it to Wordpress.com in the summer of 2014, when it became a weekend endeavor. As the tag line indicates, it’s a mix of music reviews, reminisces and related ephemera. Years long ago, I wrote about TV for the black-and-white sections of the Cable Guide, Total TV, See and TV GUIDE magazines; I also oversaw the original Old Grey Cat website (1997-2006), primarily about Neil Young’s oeuvre, and co-founded a short-lived ‘zine, Da Boot, about collector CDs.
