Reuben Radding grew up in the Washington DC punk scene, the son of classical musicians. He's lived in New York, on and off, since 1988 and has worked with just about everyone who has come through the city's creative music scene in that time. He's worked as a bass player, recording engineer, photographer and porn letter author. No shit. This is good talk that deals a lot with the ups and downs that go along with decades spent pursuing a creative life.
