I’m pretty sure I’ve written about Phoning It In on WMBR before. It’s a radio show where the host gets bands and artists to call in and play a mini set over the phone which is then broadcast over the air. He’s had some great guests.

Two that I enjoyed recent were:

  • Jens Lekman performing from his bathtub in Gothenburg, Sweden, at 1am, trying not to wake his neighbors
  • the Wrens performing from their pea-green semi-dining room in New Jersey and just being nice people and doing a great set of songs.

The same guy ran the show at BSR before that. My favorite of those shows is John Vanderslice who gets interrupted mid-song by some one coming into his apartment, only to take up right where he left off when the person leaves.
