And this would be Numero Deux of my sprawling interview with Ned Raggett. As I mentioned yesterday, my own introduction to Ned was through the message board I Love Music, and a fair bit of the discussion in this segment is focused around that (if ever a message board could be said to be dear to my own heart...). As well, Ned delves, quite eloquently I might add, into what I perhaps glibly labelled the "various crises afflicting music criticism." "Glibly" because it's not as though I really knew what I was talking about with that inquiry, frankly -- that's why I asked Ned! It's really good stuff... check it out.
The next segment will appear on Thursday.
