Talk With ME is proud to bring to the ArtSees Diner Radio audience Douglas C. Rapier. While Douglas is very well known around the world for his blues music, his rich baritone voice, and his political blogging. 

His newest endeavor is his first published novel, Ovoid Illinois'Ovoid, Illinois' is set in a microscopically small town in the American Midwest of the late 1960’s. The tale tells of the final high school year of Cheryl-Jean Billingham, cheerleader, aspiring journalist and daughter of the ambitious ex-mayor and Duncan Reynard, singer, musician and eldest son of the town barber. Although of different social circles and circumstances, the two are brought together in a bitter-sweet romance by controversy resulting from faculty in-fighting regarding the high school musical. Cheryl-Jean takes it upon herself to fight on behalf of Duncan, who she feels has been slighted. She quickly finds herself embroiled in faculty politics, small town political wrangling and the larger societal picture of the tumultuous 1960’s...

Tonight's hosts are Steven Champagne and Mary E.
