Robert Newman Explains I (Heart) NY

I Heart New York

Every year, as Valentine’s Day approaches, we have an earnest debate…is Valentine’s Day just another Hallmark card occasion? Are we obliged to get all sentimental and talk about LOVE? But, in true Life Elsewhere fashion, we always take a different angle. This time, we focus in on the word LOVE with acclaimed Creative Director, Robert Newman. The New York-based designer and frequent Life Elsewhere guest, explains the remarkable story behind the universally known logo, I (Heart) NY. As Robert says, the ubiquitous logo is probably the most well-known and copied piece of graphic design, ever. But the story of how it came into being and what has happened to it since, is fascinating. Make sure you don’t miss Robert Newman’s engaging account of I (Heart) NY. Plus, Robert, a self-admitted 60’s and 70’s Soul music buff, selects his favorite LOVE song.

Also in the program, we continue with our LOVE theme and chat with a singer-songwriter who has penned indelible songs about LOVE and relationships, the wonderful Amy Rigby. Finding a few precious moments between touring, recording and the many other activities she is involved in, Amy talks candidly about her life, love, teamwork and revenge. Amy‘s music is included in the show and she also selects her favorite LOVE song. It’s from 1967 by a British band, called “the progenitors of punk”, by the late influential American critic, Lester Bangs

On Relationships & Love With Amy Rigby

Amy Rigby

Amy Rigby was born in Pittsburgh and moved to New York City in 1976. She worked her way to a solo career through New York City country band, The Last Round Up and the eccentric girl group The Shams. Her solo career began in 1996, she moved to Nashville to pursue a publishing deal, and continued to record and tour. Amy later relocated to Cleveland, and in late 2006 moved to France with her second husband, Wreckless Eric. In the fall of 2011 they packed all their belongings into a couple of containers and headed to the USA, moving to a town in upstate New York. Amy writes songs based on personal observations about her life and importantly, about her relationships. Just before Christmas, 2015, Norman B was fortunate enough to spend time with Amy and Eric at their home. Thinking ahead, Norman asked the always busy Rigby if she would chat with him about relationships for the next Valentine’s Day edition of Life ElsewhereAmy Rigby happily agreed if she could find a few precious moments between, touring, recording, tending bar, wielding a hammer for home-improvement, cooking excellent dinners and writing a spirited diary. The resulting, intimate conversation on relationships and love, with Amy Rigby, is next on Life Elsewhere
