My sister and I are long time New Yorker readers. Recently we have added more of it to our world: the daily calendar of great old covers, the daily email articles and now New Yorker radio hour. There is nothing I enjoy more than listening to good radio while I am hooking on my big rug. I’m an avid follower of Serial — listened to season one in under a week once I discovered it–but for season two there is a two-week wait between episodes. Welcome Nyer radio. It’s weekly and has about five pieces in each episode. Great informative listening.
But back to the covers…the other day my sister wrote to me about Friday’s cover, the inimitable George Booth’s 1984 red head at the piano, below. We both love George Booth, especially his wonderful dogs. The Radio Hour just had an interview with him–he is now 90– and that took me to this article from 2014, Beware of the Dog with some of his best covers. my all-time favourite leading off. I hope you will check out the links, and tune into New Yorker radio hour. You are in for a treat.
