A high bar, yes… but I think Conor cleared it.

Item ONE.

Item TWO.

    DANIEL SCHORR enjoys NPR’s Animal Collective listening party.

    I’m still waiting for you three to show up on “Wait, wait! Don’t tell me!”

    THAT would be a broadcast to remember….

    Or at least have YOUR voice on my answering machine message…

    I’m sure Peter Sagal would love to have Bill and/or Kevin and/or Mike on the show…

    So what topic could they possibly pick for “Not My Job”?

    I imagine Ira Glass lying amongst the beer bottles on a stained wooden floor, thick rimmed glasses askew on his face…

    Now what’s this about a listening party?

    At least Dan Schorr has the decency to dress nice for the listening party, sit up attentively, and smile. Despite his heavy dosing of heroin.

    I did not think that NPR was hip to start with…But then again, what do I know.

    Yeaaaaah man, I used to party with Ira and the Schorr-meister, they could seriously throw down, one night we….well we listened to Bartok, had some tea, and Ira expressed interest in the plight of rural America in these uncertain times…..but the tea was laced with ACID man…..erm, well camomile, but it was still a heck of a party.

    No . . . . . .

    No.

    I’m not going to give this one to you until you guys start giving advice about cars.

    I agree, when did this idea of NPR being hip start? I’d like to know…because apparently (as usual) I’m behind the times…

    NPR was hip for exactly the amount of time it took them to broadcast this report:
