The Mighty 690 with Alexander Hamilton Cherin

Will chats with author Alexander Hamilton Cherin about his new novel “The Mighty Six-Ninety (690).” It’s a fictionalized account of actual events that transpired in Southern California during the Summer of 1981.

A struggling AM radio station buried $50,000 in cash and gave its listeners clues as to its location, one a day, until the money was found. Set against the backdrop of a California landscape very much in flux, the story resonates evenly between desperation, hope, and suburban dissonance.
