Every other Wednesday at noon EST, Post columnist David Segal talks about pop, rock, country, hip-hop, alternative, and the local music scene.
Segal was born in Boston, raised in Rhode Island and educated all over the place. He joined The Post in 1994 as a part-time editor in Book World. One month later he was fired for inserting the phrase "He's one bad hombre!" into every review. OK, that's not true. But it's true that he eventually landed a job in the Business section as a general assignment reporter. He covered many diverse topics, including ice cream and the Federal Trade Commission. Later he covered the legal beat and wrote a twice a month column, "Hearsay," which won three Pulitzer Prizes in the "Twice a Month Legal Column" category. Alright, that's a falsehood too, but it's absolutely true that in February of this year, he became The Post's music critic. He is 36 and enjoys pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. He is not into yoga. He is into champagne.
