"I like the vitality of in-studio, roundtable interviews," Gil says, "when you have several authors sitting at the same table and focusing on the same theme, you get real conversations. It’s fun, exciting, and often unpredictable."
On the new Word by Word programs, Gil will be inviting a different guest each month to share their unique perspective on a "Great California Writer."
Gil Mansergh should be familiar to many KRCB listeners. His movie review columns appear in four Sonoma County newspapers, and his Cinema Toast radio show has been a Thursday morning staple on KRSH-FM for seven years. Author or Book Doctor of over 50 books, manuals and curriculums, Gil was honored as a Freelance Success by Writers Digest Magazine. He honed his interview skills during five years as Director of the prestigious California Writers Conference at Asilomar. "I’m excited to have this opportunity to share my conversations with authors with KRCB’s listeners," Gil says, "and I appreciate your comments."
March 2, 2014 - Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival; Susanna SolomonWe have a two-segment Word By Word: Conversations With Writers show this month from North Bay Public Media, KRCB FM. Host Gil Mansergh invites you to first meet with the Festival director and two of the filmmakers whose award-winning documentaries will be part of the exciting and still very cool, seventh annual Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival, which will take place the last few days of March.
The second segment is a conversation and reading by Susanna Solomon, author of the recently released short story collection Sheriff’s Calls: Stories inspired by the Point Reyes Light.
February 2, 2014 - Ben MarcusHost Gil Mansergh has a special treat for our KRCB listening audience, as we welcome the return of the truly original writer Ben Marcus on this Word By Word: Conversations With Writers on North Bay Public Media, KRCB-FM.
Regular listeners should recall that Ben took time off from his job as a professor in Columbia University’s School of Arts a couple years ago, to share insights into the familiar yet unsettlingly different reality of the North America detailed in his spectacular novel The Flame Alphabet.
Already holding many literary awards, since we last met, Ben was awarded a 2013 Berlin Prize and a Guggenheim fellowship in fiction.
This Word By Word conversation focuses on Ben’s latest book - a collection of decidedly different short stories unlike any others you have read before. They have been gathered together under the title Leaving the Sea.
January 5, 2014 - Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made HimFor the January, 2014 broadcast of Word By Word: Conversations With Writers brothers Joe and David Henry join host Gil Mansergh to talk about their biography, Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World That Made Him.
Joe is a singer songwriter who broke into the business as a Production Associate for Spinal Tap, the iconic band that never really was. Married since 1987 to Melanie Ciccone, Joe has penned songs for Madonna, Madeline Peyroux and Roseanne Cash. A Grammy-winning record producer, he has created albums with Louden Wainwright III, Elvis Costello, Aimee Mann, Mose Allison, Bonnie Raitt and Hugh Laurie (yes, that Hugh Laurie).
David is an author, screenwriter and video & broadcast producer who lives in Louisville, Kentucky. David’s most recent screenplay, co-written with Archie Borders, is Pleased to Meet Me, based on Starlee Kine’s radio story “Everyone Speaks Elton John.”
Topics range from Richard Pryor’s demons, to the “salad-making” skills of Bob Dylan and Joan Rivers, to Joe and Bob’s favorite Richard Pryor movies to what a music producer actually does. In short, one of those interesting and eclectic conversations with writers for which Word by Word is famous.
December 1, 2013 - Holiday Gift BooksHost Gil Mansergh welcomes you to our annual Word By Word gift books suggestions show from North Bay Public Media, KRCB-FM.
Our guests are Sheryl Cotleur and Michele Bellah, the knowledgable frontlist buyers for the Copperfield’s Bookstores.
The conversation is about the personally selected novels, and nonfiction for adults, and picture books and stories for children that would be perfect for someone special on your gift list.
Gil invites you to sit back and spend an hour with us with your notebook handy - either paper or digital - as you to “make a list and check it twice” for gift books this year.
November 3, 2013 - Jamie FordAward-winning novelist Jamie Ford joins host Gil Mansergh for Conversations With Writers. Ford has followed his beloved novel The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet with a much-anticipated second novel set against the backdrop of Seattle's depression-era Chinatown. Songs of Willow Frost tells the tale of two youngsters who escape from an orphanage to find the Chinese-American boy's mother - a woman he thinks they have seen in a Hollywood movie. As author Pat Conroy writes: "Ford is a first-rate novelist... With his new book, he takes a great leap forward and demonstrates the uncanny ability to move me to tears."
