“Hey, I know you. You like all kinds of stuff.”
— A musician I met in Houston, Texas
Indeed I do (the word he used began sh** rather than st***).
My name is Karl Dallas and I celebrated my 82nd birthday on January 29, 2013. I’ve been at it since I was a grammar schoolboy, listening to Midnight in Frankfurt on AFN via a short-wave radio while the Nazi V2s were landing in Tooting Broadway. I wrote my first article for Melody Maker in July, 1957, and I’m still doing it today, as you can see if you go to my archive.

Go to The Karl Dallas Archive of Contemporary and Popular Music for some of my writings.
HEY SAY men can’t multitask, but since I was voted an honorary woman in Baghdad on International Women’s Day, 2003, that might explain why I’m into so much different stuff simultaneously all the time (in no particular order:
* Audio editing
* Video editing
* Etc etc etc
Have I forgotten anything? Most probably.
That’s why I’ve got so many different websites and blogs, eg www.karldallas.com, houstonmedia.tv, not to mention reality2012.wordpress.com.
From now on, thanks to some helpful advice I’ve received from Pan Aveyard, I’ve decided to cut the crap and put everything through this site (because Pan recommended I move from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, since the latter is the more powerful option, I’ll be running two versions of this blog in parallel, until I’ve got the measure of the WP.org capabilities; trust me to make complicated even a resolution to simplify stuff. Go to houstonmedia.tv/KarlDallasDay to see the other version.)
All of my various websites etc will still work, but this is where the main action will be.
Now, back to my real work, which is writing. I feel a new song coming on.
