Ira Glass, John Irving, Regina Spektor and more on latest podcast

Can you name all of these people? After you listen to this edition you'll be able to.

Unlike classic rock radio stations who boast that their shows are “Less Talk, More Rock!” in some weird flangered voice, this edition of the Metro Monthly Music Podcast is actually MORE talk, less ROCK!

But seriously, who needs music when you have
people talking about music?

Especially when those people include the author John Irving, “This American Life” host Ira Glass,
Regina Spektor, M. Ward, Mike Doughty and Edward Sharpe and the
Magnetic Zeros.

Plus, you’ll get to find out once and for all, if Sting
does it in the shower! This is a weird follow up to this story, but if you haven’t read that yet, we suggest you just kick back and listen to this podcast.

Oh, and yes, we do have some music on the MMMPod this month.  You’ll get to hear a song you will dig by
Star Slinger and Marc Roberge from the band O.A.R. talking about how influential to his songwriting Jeff Buckley was.

So won’t you start listening already? To stream it, just click on Jade from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, seated at the center of that collage there, or download this edition from iTunes by clicking here.
