WWSVLT? (What Would Sarah Vowell Listen To?)

So I kinda figured it was time this "slack ass blogger" put down the figgy pudding and actually posted something. So for anyone still out there reading this blog, a public service announcement of sorts.

You may recall a post I did last May about KCRW's Guest DJ Project. Well, some fine fine stuff has come and gone since it's inception (and appearance on the interwebs) but I would be remiss if I neglected to point out one of my favourite author's contribution. This week This American Life contributor Sarah Vowell took to the soundboard: playing songs and telling stories that ranged in topic from feminism, to Marxism, to Chuck Berry, to a risqué Christmas.

Yes it will all make complete sense, I promise. You can check out her five-song tracklist and the show's transcript here, and download the full episode MP3 from KCRW (it's about ten minutes long) here.

Having finished eating my weight in pistachio and just about everything else, I'm looking forward to engaging some of my other senses more fully, so this is certainly on my list of downloads. I do remember hearing Sarah Vowell on CBC and being quite mesmerised by her child-like voice.
