Wikipedia Files: Superchunk's Jon Wurster

Jon Wurster is a drummer. Jon Wurster is a comedian. Jon Wurster is a writer. Jon Wurster is our guest on Wikipedia Files. The triple-threat was at WBEZ studios for a taping with Sound Opinions and he graciously let us fact-check his Wikipedia page at my cubicle.

Wurster plays drums for Superchunk and several other indie-rock bands (and once with Katy Perry) and is part of the comedy duo Scharpling & Wurster. He is a big part of the New Jersey cult-hit radio program "The Best Show on WFMU."

Wurster talks about his page, but also gives us new information about his time in Chicago and possibly buying a ton of drugs from Steve Albini*.

*That's not true.
