Tonight, comedians Eugene Mirman and Jon Glaser -- who co-star in the Adult Swim show Delocated -- join Soundcheck host John Schaefer for a special live edition of Soundcheck.
They'll hear from the creator of the CataCoffin -- a casket that's tricked out with underground speakers and a customizable playlist. Plus: What would you want to play for all eternity? We ask our listeners to weigh in.
And: The band Parquet Courts recently released a buzzed-about new album, Light Up Gold. They play a set in our studio.
On the Adult Swim mockumentary “Delocated,” comedian Jon Glaser plays “Jon,” a trial witness who is on the run from the Russian mafia while appearing on a reality-TV show (disguised in a ski mask). Fellow New York-based comedian Eugene Mirman co-stars as one of the mobsters trying to kill him. They join us to talk about the show’s third season, and more.
