Lauren Ashley Smith, head writer on The Rundown with Robin Thede, joins us on this LIVE edition of the show to talk about “Ain’t Nobody” by Rufus & Chaka Khan.

WOW.
Goodness gracious! We’re back this Sunday, 5/6, at 8:30 PM, with a brand new LIVE show featuring comedic madman Branson Reese (Cartoon Network, his own damn comics) and musician Matt Costabile (The Planes, Rockets On Wire, Endl’ng). We’ll be talking with Branson about the Jawbreaker song “Want” and hearing music from Matt, which two things that excite us very much. In advance of the show, let’s get to know our guests a little better!

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.

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.
