John Flansburgh

They Might Be GiantsIt was a thrill to chat with John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants.  The Big Wakeup Call has just become an affiliate of the They Might Be Giants Radio Network, and we’ll be featuring a new, exclusive Dial-A-Song tune every week.  John and I had a fun conversation where unabashed flattery sits comfortably alongside genuine questions.  A great visit with one of my all-time favorites.

The Final Show – I’m retiring

Bill Scheft was a staff writer for David Letterman for 25 years and was nominated for 15 Emmy Awards. 30 seconds into today’s interview, I made him genuinely laugh, so it’s time for me to go out on a high note and retire.* Praise from a comedy legend!

*k, not really, but so tempted to quit while I’m ahead.  I’ll be back with more of the usual nonsense tomorrow morning.
