An Interview with Writer David Watts Barton
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on March 3, 2012

David Watts Barton has been a key writer in documenting the Sacramento music scene and beyond for decades. After working at Tower Records on Watt & El Camino, he became The Sacramento Bee's first pop music critic in 1982 and stayed with Northern California's largest newspaper through the 21st Century before exploring other local media such as SacPress.com and Capital Public Radio. Barton has written about many top recording artists, often when they came through Sacramento to play live shows.

This interview is the first of a four-part series, shot by Joe-G in front of Crocker Art Museum on Friday, March 2, 2012. David, who loves to ride his bicycle Downtown, which he mentioned in this KVIE Video, showed up on his bike. The interviews broadly cover David's career from paperboy to media figure. When it comes to talking about the history of Sacramento, David Watts Barton is an appropriate authority.
