For today's Roll Call we call out Roger Ruzow of the 4th Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra.
Who are you?
Roger V. Ruzow. Teacher/Composer/Musician.
Describe yourself in three words.
Obsessed with music.
Who dead or alive would most you like to meet?
It'd be nice to have a few drinks with Captain Kangaroo, Kurt Vonnegut, Emile Jaques-Dalcroze and Lester Bowie if their schedules don't conflict.
Who would you most like to slap in the face?
Myself when I was in undergraduate school.
What song do you wish you had written?
The windows start-up sound. I hate that damn noise, but the royalties would sure help to fund other ideas.
Elvis Costello or Elvis Presley?
What time of day or night is this question asked and which one of them is buying?
LP, CD or MP3?
See above answer for clarification.
If you could start one trend, what would it be?
Thinking... assuming I figure out how to do it.
If you could end one trend, what would it be?
With whom would you most like to play a game of spin the bottle?

3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
oh sweet: just who i was waiting to get announced!
