TALES OF. . . MY DEAD HEROES is the second season of podcasts from Josh Alan Friedman. But DEAD is a politically incorrect term. Their songs and books and records resonate everywhere, and if you haven’t heard their actual voices, pull up a chair and listen. Novelist Mario Puzo, songwriters Jerry Leiber (Leiber & Stoller) and Doc Pomus, Broadway composer Cy Coleman, original Thunderbirds bassist Keith Ferguson, Atlantic Records producer Joel Dorn, Tiny Tim. . . . And check out TALES OF TIMES SQUARE: THE TAPES. This 17-episodes series captures the voices of Lost New York. Old fighters, strippers, burly-Q men, peep show girls, cops and the priest who tried to save them. Come bend your ear.

Hurry...Bring on Episode 2.

Great True Stories documented and narrated by a Great story teller, Josh Alan. I loved reading Josh Alan's autobiographical novel "Black Cracker ". So, it is no surprise to me how much I enjoyed this 1st Episode of "Tales of Times Square". BTW, the intro music is Josh, himself, singing and strumming his guitar.

Take a walk around old Times Square

A fascinating collection of stories from a time and place that no longer exists. Josh Alan Friedman takes you on a gritty journey to meet the kind of folks that you definitely don't want to bring home to mother -- peep show girls, burlesque dancers, mop boys, midgets, and ministers -- and peels back the stereotypes to meet the real people underneath these sordid professions.

The companion piece to his seminal book Tales of Times Square, this podcast unearths the original audio recordings of Friedman's interviews with the inhabitants of "the sleaziest block in town."

So grab a mop and a bucket, some ear muffs for the kids, and enjoy the ride back in Time(s).

Season 2

Season 2 opens with a bang, shot right out of a cannon. I look forward to the next episodes.
