Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

My favorite radio show is “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.” I save the episodes and listen to them when I’m packing, one of my least favorite jobs of being a touring musician. To my mind, you’ve really made when you’re on the “Not My Job” segment. Wait, wait … I should...
Each Day is a Soufflé

Each Day is a Soufflé
