Toad on Fresh Air – 10th March 2011
I am Ruthless for this week’s show on Fresh Air Radio, so it will just be me prattling on by myself instead. I have a John Darnielle tribute to the assault on organised labour in Wisconsion, I have the original version of that song, and I have some Withered Hand, in honour of his SXSW visa troubles.
Other than that, I am pretty worn out from a night of epic drinking in Stockton (which is not even Middlesbrough) last night after the excellent seminar thingy hosted by The Generator at which I (inevitably) drank and talked far too much. There is a certain inevitability to these things, isn’t there.
