My Kind of Desk

Bob Boilen has one of the coolest jobs in the world, curating music for All Songs Considered and managing NPR Music's overall efforts.  As if that weren't enough, serendipity and a corner location led to the Tiny Desk Concert series, where bands strip down their equipment and play short gigs amongst the piles of papers, CDs, and books in Boilen's Washington, DC office.

This week, G:TB fave Wilco played two new tunes and and old favorite hard by Boilen's workspace.  Check it out.  And check out the entire series. My office is not nearly this awesome.

Rob, it's like Teej is your maid.

And for those who are eating a late lunch, here's your thought for the day: the Teej in a French maid outfit.

Dave said...

i don't remember-- but i don't even see you on the little list of people on the side anymore. spotify has deleted you!

Squeaky said...

Dave, I had disabled the Facebook plugin. It has been enabled. So you, Rob and my friends should be able to see my playlists.
