Ever since he started the band XTC in the late '70s, Andy Partridge has been writing songs that are both adventurous and catchy. Bending the rules of songwriting until they're nice and bouncy, Partridge has used them as a springboard to a distinctive style he continues to explore and enlarge. After listening to "Fuzzy Warbles," a nine-CD set of Partridge's song demos, host David Garland calls Partridge on the phone for an in-depth conversation about songwriting ideas, craft, and fun. We'll also have a preview of "Monstrance," a forthcoming album by Partridge's new improvising trio.
