Rick Falkonwski has led an interesting life. A professional manager, he had a side gig in the Western New York music industry, publishing a magazine, managing concerts, and even starting the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame. But it was a publisher’s rejection letter that started his retirement career as a historian. He has since published a total of four books, including the most recent about prominent women from Western New York. He talks about eight of them in this week’s episode of The Greater Western New York Report.
