FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgThe journalistic musings of James Wolcott have long graced the pages of everything from Esquire to Harper's to the New Yorker.  His latest book, Lucking Out: My Life Getting Down and Semi-Dirty in Seventies New York," is a vivid account of his transition from small town Maryland to the gritty, grimy streets of 70's Manhattan.

Elvis Mitchell goes back in time with his old friend, who regales with tales of nights at CBGB's, being a "Paulette," and a rather close call with the Hell's Angels.
