Jesse, I am posting this despite the fact that you never responded to my email about Elvis Costello’s Radio Sweetheart. Do you feel shame now that you are reading this free bit of awesome publicity?

    I did too email you back! Didn’t I? I always do. I thought.

    Seriously: I would use Bowie, Costello and Nation of Ulysses (the three big suggestions I get), but I could never afford it.

  2. bumpershine says:

    I forgive you Jesse, looking forward to the show.
