Welcome to Talking ‘Bout My Generation

Hi. I’m Dave Price and I operate a writing/speaking/tour guiding practice in Washington, DC. Before that, I was a journalist (10 years) and an educator and educational consultant (34 years).

I am focusing on 4 subjects:

  • the Baby Boomer generation
  • classic rock
  • issues on aging, especially as they affect men and
  • dissent, protest, and free speech today as they reflect the concerns of the Baby Boom era.

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 Freelance Writer: I am a senior contributor to the digital hub Booming Encore. My work also appears in Sixty and Me and Manopause.

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 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.

Here at my Website: Talking ‘Bout My Generation contains my articles, musings, and photos focusing on the Baby Boom generation (those of us born between 1946 and 1964). More specifically you will find items dealing with rock music from the ’50s/’60s/’70s, events and personalities from 1960 to 1980, issues on aging that effect Baby Boomers today, and concerns of contemporary freedoms as specified in the First Amendment that echo those of the Baby Boom era.

You can also find my writing at the coronavirus compendium website Every Storm Runs Out of Rain: A People’s Journal of a Pandemic, where I serve as coordinator, curator, and senior correspondent. as well as Come Together: A Music Matters Blog from my Talking “Bout My Generation project and a blog I wrote for 4 years called The Prices Do DC.

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.
