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).

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.

Brilliant, Not To Put Too Fine a Point on the Matter...

The book ("Tales of Times Square") is a perennial, blooming from the bookcase and often read in this household. Social Anthropology in its truest form. How very rewarding to hear those voices in Real Time... The podcast dovetails ideally with the written word. Beautiful.
