Robwired is Robert Folsom.
Robert Folsom began his journalism career at the National Catholic Reporter where he began writing when he suggested a profile on musician Bruce Cockburn. “Five hundred words. My desk. Monday morning,” he was told. He also covered American Indian issues in news items, editorials and book reviews.
From NCR it was on to The Kansas City Star. During his first week there, he was asked if he wanted to review a Smashing Pumpkins concert. He went on to review more concerts, focusing on jazz performances; interviewing actors, authors and musicians; reviewing biographies and jazz CDs, and writing a monthly science fiction and fantasy book review column.
