Payton Curry, What Are You Listening To?
When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? Cat Power Radio. It's been one of those weeks for me. I don't do radio at all.
What's the last song played on your portal music player? "Pretty Peggy-O," Grateful Dead. On a scale of one to ten, Jerry (Garcia) and I would both give this a nine.
What's the first record you bought? Led Zeppelin, In Through the Out Door. I found it at a garage sale down the street. Records are where it's at.
What's the first concert you saw? Prince--the second best thing from Minnesota, next to (Bob) Dylan.
What was your favorite new or new-to-you album from 2010? Pixies, Surfers Rosa .
What one song would you play if you had a world-wide radio audience? "I Shall Be Released"--Dylan playing if I played it at night, Garcia playing Dylan if it's in the morning.
