Journalist and author, Mark Caro, continues to expand our global view, this time by creating a podcast and website, Caropop. His site includes extended conversations with a creative person, which he posts each Thursday morning. Episodes will (or have) featured Bruce Thomas, estranged bassist of Elvis Costello and the Attractions; Kathy Valentine, bassist for the Go-Go’s; Lonnie Jordan, singer-songwriter-keyboardist for War; and Riccardo Muti, legendary conductor and music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. All of these people open up and tell great stories, and Mark plans to speak with film people, chefs and other artistic types as well. The site also features posts taking the form of columns, reported pieces, reflections on music he’s loving, blog items, all sorts of stuff. Mark also discusses his rekindled passion for vinyl albums.You can also find Mark’s podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and RSS. Check it out! Congratulations, Mark! Wishing you great success!
