This is a comedy and kids’ music episode! Richard starts by sharing his latest record haul (Tim Kasher, Hotelier, Hay Baby, R.E.M. and more) and then asks for your advice on how to find time to listen to records when you’re busy ALL THE TIME! Seriously. He needs your advice. Then, Richard chats with his old friend Tony Cavalero aka Mr. Finn from Nickelodeon’s School of Rock kids’ series. How do you take on a role made famous by Jack Black? What music do the kids listen to? Can you take me off speaker and use headphones? Richard asks Tony all these questions and more. Finally, our second guest Gretchen, aka Richard’s elderly neighbour, hops on the phone and, boy, you’ll want to listen. Sincere thanks for listening and being a part of the Surface Noise experience!
