Burt Bacharach talks with Ron Shapiro about At This Time and his classic collaborations with Hal David and Dionne Warwick on this week’s RhinoCast Rhino Records’ weekly podcast.

Vincent Cole sent in photos from recent Bacharach shows in New Jersey and at B.B. King’s in New York. Thanks, Vincent!
Burt is now a blogger. Bacharach’s first column, which appeared yesterday on the political website The Huffington Post, discussed the evolution of the new political consciousness in his music.
Unlike last fall, when Burt’s comments about President Bush and the Iraq War provoked an angry conservative backlash, the readers of the Huffington Post were almost universal in their praise and encouragement. Blogging isn’t the only new media Burt has recently become involved
