show 173 – Ben Bochner

This is Todd again.

I have a confession to make; I didn’t know of Ben Bochner before the show. All my Google searches turned up nothin’. So I was pleasantly surprised by what a nice and accomodating guy he is, and a total professional (not to mention a really cool songwriter!). I think Ben’s going to do well here. Chicago doesn’t know what it’s missing.

(Note to self: “Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime” is my favorite song to end the show with, but I’ve done that a few times now, so it’s probably time to find an alternative.)

Here’s the playlist:

Crystin Byrd – Shadow – My Silence (self)
John Vecchiarelli – To The Brim – Songs From Whoville (Speck)
Yann Tiersen & Shannon Wright – Dragon Fly
Susie Blue – Slip – Sink (Sinking Ship)

Ben Bochner live:
       Food Chain
       Bobby Just Got Out Of Jail (false start)
       Faller’s Girl
       Everybody’s Ass Is Up For Grabs

John Wesley Harding – When The Beatles Hit America (dedicated to Thuy)
Ben Folds – Give Judy My Notice
Mia Doi Todd – Digital
Beck & Jon Brion – Everybody’s Gotta Learn Sometime – “Eternal Sunshine” s.t.

Thanks to all those who pledged to HCW and KPSU!

I’d like to give a shout out to John N. Dallas.
