Simone Corday

I had the pleasure of interviewing Simone Corday, author of the new book, 9 1/2 Years Behind The Green Door. This fascinating memoir details her time working as a dancer at the Mitchell Brothers/O'Farrell Theater, being "Party Artie"'s lover and her relationship with Hunter S. Thompson. She also did a lot of research into the murder of Art, committed by his brother Jim, reading court transcripts, etc.

Our interview lasted for over an hour, and I tried breaking it up with some musical interludes, and once again, stumped with technical difficulties at the station. So, I'm very happy to see that the broadcast was recorded on the podcast.
