Rich Besen - WNUR

Which musician/band would you love to sit down and have a cup of coffee with?

The lead singer of the Long Blondes (Kate Jackson). She seems pretty sharp and foxy.

What’s your desert-island album?

The Zombies - Odessey & Oracle

How do you discover new music?

I try to keep up with music blogs but I tend to listen to everything that makes it into our station record library.

What do you love, besides music?

Cooking and any food in general.

What was the last great book you read?

Stiff – Mary Roach (very dry-humorous look into what happens with bodies donated to science). I need to read more though…

What band/musician do you think is about to break out?

Le Loup is an awesome band from DC. They had one of my favorite albums of 2007.

What charity or social cause (non-political) are you passionate about?

I know it’s pretty nerdy, but internet neutrality is going to be a big issue soon. Also, it would be nice if the FCC did something about media monopolies.

What songs have you been listening to lately?

The Clean – Thumbs Off

Black Moth Super Rainbow – Lost, Picking Flowers in the Woods

Golden Boots – Diamond Eyes

The Scene Is Now – Yellow Sarong (Yo La Tengo covers this song)

The Deadly Snakes – Work


Bio: I am originally from Boston and finishing my last year at Northwestern. Besides listening to music constantly, I spend large amounts of time cooking, which has quickly become my favorite hobby.
