WFMU‘s annual pledge drive was a couple weeks ago, and as I’m an avid listener of The Best Show on WFMU I decided to show my support for Tom and what he does there. I made a pledge during his show, and this week I finally listened to the podcast of the marathon show, which included guest appearances by Patton Oswalt, Ben Gibbard, and Ted Leo. As Pseu read out the names of people who donated, Patton was handing out nicknames, and to my delight, I’ve been christened anew… take a listen:
I do love sourdough (untoasted, of course), so from now on you dudes can go ahead and call me Sourdough Jake. If you go to the podcast and listen to the whole show you can hear them thank Joe as well, as well as Ben of The Bay Bridged fame. Way to do the right thing, guys.
Also, check out this in-studio video of Ted Leo and Ben Gibbard doing Neil Diamond’s "Porcupine Pie", which Tom has proclaimed to be the worst song in the history of mankind.
Now hop on over to WFMU’s Beware of the Blog to see all the other great vids, or to Pitchfork for some pics.Tags: bestshow, comedy, Music, wfmu
