Ok, I'll put it there as soon as I can dig it out and edit it. Someone just 
mentioned that interview to me this past Tuesday night.

The book thing is in the works. A Northeastern University professor, Dr. 
Leonard Brown,  went to WGBH and told them that my interviews needed to be 
made public. The station put up some money and some students transcribed 
about 40 of them. That was years ago and the project stalled but now Leonard 
and another Northeastern professor are editing them, mostly for typos, 
misspellings and grammatical errors.

Northeastern's Press had expressed interest in a book of my interviews but 
they are no longer in business.
