I'm On YouTube!
Los Angeles, California. Welcome to our new author's YouTube channel, Adventures with Chester L. Richards. First in the series featuring the beguiling storyteller as he weaves tales recorded in his new book, "From The Potato to Star Trek and Beyond: Memoirs of a Rocket Scientist."
From Chester: "Do pull up a chair and sit back as we go on the first of a series of explorations, some to exotic lands, a number hair-raising. And some, like this one, musical. The Great Music Stands Adventure takes you back to my high school years playing in a band. As you’ll see, it turned out to be pretty hairy, though not one of my brushes with death.
"I hope you enjoy the tale, and more to come in the weeks ahead."
I know we had a lot of fun interviewing this multifaceted man. Enjoy!
From Chester L. Richards
Hello, and happy to see you here! A little about what's behind these stories: Having retired from the world of aerospace engineering, I now spend time reading, inventing, listening to music, taking photographs and sharing them with friends. And writing stories. Often about people I've met as I've traveled to exotic places, learned about music, surfing, white water rafting, optics, photography. Every story is true. I hope you enjoy them.
