From 2002 until 2007, I wrote music preview articles for The Salinas Californian, a newspaper owned by Gannett Co. The majority of these articles were published in print; some of the later ones were online only. The Californian does not have them archived, so I will post here as many as I can find.
Many of these articles have been scanned from the print versions and then converted to text files via OCR (Optical Character Recognition). As a result, there may be a few translation errors that I missed when I proof read them. In addition, some of the choices made by the editors struck me as strange at the time, and even stranger now in retrospect. However, I have left their changes to my writing intact as this was what was published.
There’s a blog entry about compiling these articles online here.
Drop me a line by e-mail if you would like a PDF version of the original of any story. I’ll gladly send you one if I have it.
