Bob Makin is the coolest person we know. Not only is he the author of the Makin' Waves column, but he is also a walking encyclopedia of NJ and Asbury Park music history.  He is also a really kind man. We spoke about the NJ music scene and what he sees as the future of local music.


Bob also talked about the Rick Makin Memorial Scholarship for Humanities and Social Sciences at Monmouth University. Tune into this conversational  "drive down memory lane" where we talk about the rich history of the Asbury Park music scene!


Listen to our podcast with Bob!

Born from an existential argument between the modernists and postmodernists, I have found my home with the post-punks and those who love a good slice of pizza. I live in a world of art in the age of mechanical reproduction and the ever-elusive decisive moment. Punctum and Stadium aside, I like to take photographs of people and things to see how they look photographed. While I miss CBGBs, I think Asbury Park is as close as we are ever going to get to making punk whatever we make it to be. The future is unwritten and I owe it all to Mr. Bradley and Mr. Martin. Let us now praise famous men and ask the little prince for his thoughts. Sometimes I'm on the road, but If it wasn’t for the honor of the thing, I’d rather walk. My loving wife supports this albatross of an obsession and my kids put up with me well. BA, MFA, M.Ed., BCEA, Tri-X, and Nikon.
