Steve Paul has had a lifelong infatuation with music -- as a listener, amateur guitarist, jazz and classical music dj, as well as a writer and editor of music journalism. Also an infrequently published poet, he is thrilled to partner on a free-form program of poetry, song, Hemingway and abandon with his friend Howard Iceberg, who is much more of a musician and has better hair.
