After a 15-year hiatus, I return to my old college radio station at Montclair State University with my former co-host, the lovely & talented Jill Knapp as we relive old times and talk about things we're up to now. We discuss the history of The Cellular Toaster, how it evolved from the show Propaganda From Hell (and we take calls from former hosts Jim From Hell and Alter-Ego Pete), We Might Be Giants Too, Ralph the Word Guy, Jill's band: Industrial Jazz Group, my work with Digital Cafe Tour and Friday's Child, The Dead Milkmen (Bring Out Your Dead!), The Joe Trainor Trio, They Might Be Giants, Frank Zappa, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Fathom and more! Tremendous thanks to Jeff Knapp for being resourceful enough to record this, while my efforts to do so failed miserably! (Recorded Monday, May 10, 2010, 3pm-5pm.)
