Channel 5 — March 29, 2020

Far from bitter or self-pitying, Rock Monster is an honest account of one woman’s life-changing experience in a relationship with rock legend Joe Walsh. At once envious, glamorous, debauched and disturbing, it’s her long and winding journey from life in the fast lane to sobriety and redemption.  Set in the late-eighties and nineties, these are some of Walsh’s darkest years, from spiraling addiction to a stunning comeback with the Eagles’ Hell Freezes Over tour. Loaded with true stories never before heard, Rock Monster is essential reading for classic rock fans and anyone touched by addiction. Kristin Casey pulls no punches, sharing gritty details with self-awareness, humor, and affection. Sharply written, bold and incisive, it’s the worldly-wise tome only an ex-addict, ex-stripper, and ex-rock-chick could give us. In the tradition of women-in-rock survivor tales―think Marianne Faithful, Crystal Zevon, Jo Wood et al.―Kristin Casey pulls a veil on the enduring myth of the lifestyle’s glamorous decadence. Rock Monster is a sexy, crazy, cautionary tale of two addicts in love without a single relationship skill.

Currently playing: Jan Notzon speaking about “The ID Paradox”

After disastrous experiences in law and education, Jake Kazmareck tries to disappear into a menial job picking melons on a farm in the Rio Grande Valley.

An estranged friend tracks him down, however, with news that their mutual bosom buddy is not dead but rotting in a Mexican prison. The stage is set for his rescue.

Jake, Connors McClain, and Artie Cavazos’s friendship was forged during an almost fatal canoe trip in which only Artie’s genius for survival kept them alive. Their brush with death, however, unleashed in Jake a primitive beast that has never stopped plaguing him. A few years later, the three engage in an attempt to rescue Artie’s uncle and family from the Mexican drug cartel that had forced his uncle to work for them. Jake mistakenly attributes their failure, and Artie’s death, to Connors’s betrayal. When Connors later contacts Jake, he shares some startling news. Connors, now the Texas attorney general, has discovered that Artie is still alive and imprisoned in a Mexican jail.

The harrowing rescue is successful, but Artie’s experiences have effectively destroyed his spirit. Jake and Connors now reconciled, they enlist the aid of psychiatrist Judith Neuwirth to try to piece back together Artie’s shattered self.

Currently playing: Edward M. Wysocki, Jr. speaking about “An ASTOUNDING War: Science Fiction and World War II”

In 1938, there were only a few pulp science fiction magazines on the newsstands. Slowly at first, the number of such publications began to increase. Events of much greater importance were also occurring at this time. In September 1939, World War II began in Europe. Eventually, the United States would be drawn into that conflict. What possible connections did pulp science fiction magazines have with World War II? That is the question that is investigated in An ASTOUNDING War. The title of this book is taken from the magazine Astounding Science-Fiction, which was considered the top of the field at that time. It still exists today as Analog Science Fiction and Fact. This book uses Astounding as the means to look at the question in two directions. In the first direction, the effects of the war upon science fiction are explored. How were Astounding and the other pulp magazines affected by the war? What were the wartime activities of various authors? How was the content of Astounding, both fiction and non-fiction, influenced by the war? Looking in the other direction, what effects did science fiction or those people associated with the genre have upon the war…
