Comedian and actor Eugene Mirman presents his list of The Funniest Songs Of All Time. Plus, Soundcheck asks listeners to chime in with your suggestions and stories -- and we’ll compile the (sort of) authoritative playlist at the end of the week.
Once known for his songwriting prolificacy, Ryan Adams stepped away from music for a time to deal with a crippling inner ear disorder and build his Los Angeles studio Pax-Am. Now, the singer-songwriter is back, not only with a new self-titled album of country and rock songs, but a 10-song punk EP. Hear Adams perform a pair of songs from each recording in the Soundcheck studio. Plus, he explains why 7-11 is the gravitational center for the world’s weirdos, geeks out on recording gear, and explains how Star Wars legitimizes analog recordings.
