Later Than You Think

Royal Kent (lyrics); Wendy Loomis (music)

The electronic version of the classic 'Later Than You Think'. Inspired by a local public access television producer by the name of Dangerous George. Produced on San Francisco's Channel 25, the name of the show was 'Trip City/Straighter Than You Think'. Dangerous George had a way with words which no doubt landed him in a lot of trouble in life. Words also got him out of trouble, redeemed him. He once shared a story with poet Royal Kent about being saved from the electric chair in Texas when the female plaintiff decided to tell the truth. When asked by a reporter with the San Francisco Chronicle why he produced Trip City, Dangerous George replied "for the same reason a woman has a baby...I came to San Francisco to do Trip City"!
