"I thought I was watching and listening to Will Rogers with an Ivy League education and maybe that's true, but your humor and songs - both touching and delightful - was better andmuch more enjoyable than his lasso"
-Herb Freed, Film-maker, novelist and friend

"Sometimes I wake up
in the strangest places, and I wonder where I've been.
And in the time
between the time
between the time
between the time...
the gypsy sings again."
...from 'Golden Apples of The Sun' by Barry Kane and Art Podell
"My biggest fear is that
they will find out that I would write songs even
if they didn't pay me"
... Jack Murphy, songwriter
"You're asking me if I've experimented with marijuana? Cripes dad, next thing you'll be asking me to play folk-music!"
...my son David at age 16
This site was launched August 2010 as my personal 'captain's log'. It contains music (some mine), photos, thoughts, reflections, history, events, links to friends' sites and things of interest to me. Maybe to you also.
I update frequently, tweak things here and there constantly. If you would like to contact me, please do so. I'm friendly enough for the most part.
My contact information is on the last page but if you are lazy...click
Thanks ... Art
