As my subscription to New Yorker Rocker was running out in Summer 1982, I received a letter from their offices asking me to share the reasons why I was not renewing. They published my response, and I even got a nice personalized postcard from Andy Schwartz. It's the little things...
Like Trouser Press, NYRocker closed shop shortly thereafter (clearly, my non-renewal done them in!), and thus ended the glory days of New York (and American) rock journalism.
