My guest spot on NPR’s World Cafe with David Dye aired on Tuesday, much to my mom and dad’s delight. After I spent approximately seventeen years trying to find a way to stream it online, I was finally able to hear my sleekly-edited interview late in the evening. Over about thirty minutes, Dye and I chatted about a few of my favorite albums of 2007, and my impressions of the current blog world/digital music landscape.
The conversation was a ridiculously fun one to have, and most of the time I forgot that they were even recording. It is a credit to Dye that he can make jittery first-timers feel so relaxed and get to the core of the matter, which was the slew of great music this year. I didn’t get a chance to cover all my picks, and they cut some of the portions (plus I am kicking myself for not even mentioning the lyric + sentiment that I borrowed the oft-confusing name of my blog from!) — but overall this was something I deeply enjoyed doing.
If you missed it, you can take a listen now:
