Welcome to Talking ‘Bout My Generation

Hello there. I’m Dave Price and I operate this writing/speaking/video podcasting/tour guiding practice in Washington, DC. Before that, I was a journalist (10 years) and an educator and educational consultant (29 years).

We focus on 4 subjects:

  • the history, culture, and lifestyle of the Baby Boomer generation
  • the music of the Woodstock Generation (classic mid-60s/70s/early-80s rock, pop, and soul)
  • speech, dissent and protest for social problems still with us from the activist times of the 50s, 60s, and 70s
  • issues of importance for aging Baby Boomers today such as work, retirement, leisure time, and health

As a Book Author: The first book in my 3-book series (and my first book ever) on classic rock entitled Come Together: How the Baby Boomers, the Beatles and a Young Counterculture Combined to Create the Music of the Woodstock Generation was published in November of 2019. Come Together is currently available at the Politics and Prose bookstore in Washington, DC. It can be purchased here through the Politics and Prose website. It is also available in a Kindle edition. Click here to purchase the book for Kindle for Amazon.

As a Speaker: I deliver lectures for Smithsonian Associates and other venues here is DC. This was my summer 2019 program for the Smithsonian. Currently, all my 2020 lectures have been postponed due to closings prompted by the COVID-19 virus.

As Podcaster/Internet Show Host: I am the creator, curator, and co-host for the music history video podcast Rock of Agers: Talking About the Music of the Woodstock Generation.and I am also a featured recurring guest on of the Facebook/YouTube/Periscope/Twitch political talk program Divided We Stand

As a Tour Guide: I led First Amendment tours at the Newseum from 2017 until the museum closed in 2019. Currently, all my tours for 2020 have been postponed due to restrictions for the coronavirus pandemic.

At this Website: Talking ‘Bout My Generation contains my articles, musings, photos, and video podcasts focusing on the Baby Boom generation (those of us born between 1946 and 1964). More specifically, you will find items dealing with history, lifestyle, and culture of the Baby Boomers, rock music from the ’50s/’60s/’70s, issues on aging that affect Baby Boomers today, and concerns of free speech as specified in the First Amendment that echo those of the Baby Boom era.

Here is a link to an online version of what academics call a CV and most of us call a resume. You can find out more there about who I am and what I have done there. Thanks for checking out my writer/speaker/tour guiding page. I hope you find things here to interest you and keep you coming back.

From my musical years playing in some of the loudest, least legendary bands in the Philadelphia/ South Jersey Shore area.
