GUEST: Music Promoter/Book Author BUD MONACO
TOPIC: Author’s Career and new novel: “RIDING EASY”
The guest on today’s “A LOOK AT THE ARTS with Tom Lounges” program is a long time Chicagoland music promoter, turned book author — BUD MONACO — who drops by the Lakeshore studio to talk about the release of his first novel, “RIDING EASY.” It’s the fictional story about the adventure of two Viet Nam-era veterans who take a road trip across America on their Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
“RISING EASY” is the follow up to Monaco’s previous book — “DRAFTED: You’re In The Army Now!” — a personal account of his own experience of being drafted and serving Uncle Sam.
Lounges will chat with Monaco about how he made the transition from the music biz to the book writing biz and his approach to writing, with an emphasis on the author’s latest work of fiction. More info: www.Sopromusic.com.
