this american life: music lessons

Most of the hours not spent at the office this week have been spent in bed trying to fight through some energy-draining bug.  The upside to this is that it's given me lots of time to indulge in old episodes of This American Life.

If at some point today you need to take a break from scary news coverage of earthquakes and tsunamis (and trust me you really should even for an hour),  I highly recommend this episode originally broadcast in 1998:  David Sedaris doing Billie Holliday doing ad jingles, Sarah Vowell's confessions of a band geek and Anne Lamott's touching and funny story "of an airplane trip, a song, and a small miracle."
