This week: - Amy from Titus Andronicus gives us something old and something new in a new segment we're calling "Your Favorite Things" - We quiz our listener, Ben from Cleveland, on his 1990s music knowledge - Indie superstar David Bazan drops in to do a little chatting, a little quiz taking, and a little singing PLUS... Gossip Wolf spends a good 5 minutes snapping on the recent Urge Overkill reunion, M.I.A. tweets from deep inside Kanye's man cave, and we have a cameo from a bona fide NPR CELEBRITY.
