I knew Alan pretty well from his days at Pacifica in the late 50s. I’d not seen him since those days but were in touch by email in the decade before his demise. I’ve followed his writing over all those years. I hope every effort possible will be made to preserve his writing. I saw him in New York just after he started writing for the NY Times. He’d written a sharp review of a recital by the aging Lily Pons, I think it was, I think his first, which drew an admiring note from the managing editor, Clifton Daniel.
