Legendary and delightful funnyman Kyle Gordon (My Dark Little Corner, Magnet Theater) was our guest to talk about “Wondering Where The Lions Are” by Bruce Cockburn. Kyle tells us how he came across this song and how much it means to him. It’s pretty clear that this is Kyle’s song considering how much he listens to it and it’s a tune he relies on to calm him down.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!! We continue our annual tradition of LOVE SONGS ONLY for the Valentine’s Day edition of the live show and we invite SEVEN wonderful friends to join us for the occasion.
World-renowned funnyman Brady O’Callahan (UCB, The Onion) is on the show to talk about The SteelDrivers’ song “Blue Side Of The Mountain.”
Josh Sharp (The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, Jacob’s brother) is on the show to talk about Ryan Adams – Let it Ride. Jacob Sharp (Mipso, Josh’s brother) joins Josh to play the cover together! The brothers grew up playing this song together, and their take on it is beautiful.
The hilarious and sharp-witted Sarah Pappalardo (co-founder, co-editor of Reductress) joins us on this LIVE episode of the show to talk about St. Vincent’s song “Cruel.”
Maeve Higgins (Maeve in America, Inside Amy Schumer) joins us to talk about Frank Ocean – White Ferrari. Maeve is from Cobh, Ireland and now resides in NYC. White Ferrari is a beautifully simple song that is as emotional as it is ambient. Maeve discusses what it’s like to write a book and how this song helped her sit down and write.
Holy shit! Our next and final show of 2017 is tomorrow, Sunday, 12/3, at 7:00 pm and our guests will be comedian Maeve Higgins (Inside Amy Schumer, Maeve In America) and Bartees & The Strange Fruit….
Writer, actor, and classically trained vocalist, Eliot Glazer, uses his best public radio voice to tell us about his favorite song: Janet Jackson’s “If.” Our friend Mikki Hommel makes her first appearance on the show and performers a beautiful improvised song for you in addition to the “If” cover! We talk to Eliot about growing up on Long Island, the makeup of the island, and discovering this song. We all agree that the artwork for “Janet” is the quintessential Janet Jackson album cover and how, back in the day, Janet’s portrayal of herself felt more real and important.
Maris Kreizman (Slaughterhouse 90210) brought her favorite sad song with her: Concrete Blonde – Joey. Joey has been one of Maris’ favorites for years, and even sang it from a porch for the world to hear! We talk about how Maris found herself connecting to sad songs about complicated relationships and thinking she related to them on some level. We talk about aspirational sadness and the cathartic power that sad music has.
Two guests! One host! Oh, what a night! On this LIVE episode, Pat talks with Kiri Oliver and Heidi Vanderlee of the band Early Riser about a song they both love! With Evan out of town, Pat interviews Kiri and Heidi about “You Can Make Him Like You” by The Hold Steady.
