Alison on the radio

So I used to listen to A Prairie Home Companion on Sundays. Mostly it annoyed me, but occasionally something interesting would come up. I always liked the Ketchup skit.
Anyway, I stopped listening a while back, but I happened to turn it on this morning. Nick Lowe was on and he just sang the sweetest version of ALISON. It was so sad.
I probably won't listen to APHC much in the future, but this was a nice goodbye.

So, the new Wilco record

NPR is streaming it this week.  I listened to it on my ear buds at work while I was doing some bullshit crap for the coffee man and I was like "It's alright."   I've been playing the Stephen Malkmus album non-stop (I'm seeing him in two weeks!!!!!!) so I had to adjust.  
I listened to it again at work today in a better frame of mind and thought "yes, i'm getting Summerteeth AND A Ghost is Born."  And then.
NPR has this handy app for iphones where you can listen to the albums on your phone so now I'm listening to the album LOUD on SPEAKERS in the comfort of my home and I'm really digging it.
