During the three day convention, I conversed with many inquisitive and wonderful people and I was invited to be a guest on Christy Canyon's Sirius Satellite Playboy radio broadcast, live from the Donald E. Stephen's Centre. (Two summers ago, Jennifer, Laurie Holmes and I were Christy Canyon and Vanessa Blue's guests on Playboy Radio's 'Nightcalls' during 'Legends' week, on the eve of our book launch in Hollywood, California.) I was also pleased to meet one of the Golden Age's most prestigious stars, Ginger Lynn Allen, during our three day stay in the Windy city. This past winter I interviewed Ginger via telephone for a forthcoming book project, so I was very happy to finally make her acquaintance in person.
I was honoured to be asked to be interviewed on-camera by filmmaker, Valerie Gobos, for an upcoming documentary on the legendary Ms. Marilyn Chambers; we conducted one of the final interviews with Chambers for our bio two years prior to her untimely death in 2009. At the top of this blog, I am pictured along with Valerie Gobos, and "Chicago" Joe Rubin, an astute adult film historian who is integral to the Marilyn Chambers documentary.
Thanks so much to everyone who came out and stopped by our booth! It was an absolute pleasure to meet you all during my short but very enjoyable trip to Chi-Town!
** In other news, Jennifer and I are thrilled to announce that we successfully completed recording our book for the upcoming audio format. It was a challenging process, but also an extremely fun endeavor. Please stay tuned for news on availability later this year.
