Conan. That's really all you need to know. The late night legend makes good on his promise to sit down in Marc's garage for a chat. They discuss Conan's personal insecurities, the people who leave him starstruck, how he's still processing what happened to him at NBC and how the recent events in his professional life helped him relax.

Keep Marc Maron on the air. Funny, spontaneous, and fresh. Tired of Frank on the ears.

I miss Joe Frank, too. Would be great to be able to have them both. And while you're at it, please consider broadcasting the old radio version of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

where is joe? did he die? this show sounds like the "the sound of young america" (which should be called 'comedy industry chat'). i can understand the need to do something new, especially if mr. frank is no longer producing material... but please for god's sake something appropriate to fill frank's shoes. conan is a smart, no doubt talented guy... but this is not the place, is it? isn't there a show that is pushing the boundaries of radio that needs to be in this slot? i don't want to disparage this marc maron guy, but this just isn't the place. my sad fear is that a young joe frank would never be allowed a shot on wnyc today...

I need my Foe Frank fix. Conan? Come on! Next it will be Andre Riu! Keep it off the beaten trail, please.

My wife and I are so glad NPR is broadcasting Marc Maron, a genius and a nice person with his cats. We are avid fans of his radio work and stand-up comedy. He creates something new and compelling. Again, we must add he's a nice guy with his cats. Please make his show a permanent addition to NPR's schedule. We like Joe Frank too, but he's had ample time.
