Another winner from NPR's (National Public Radio) This American Life (TAL) show. --- In this episode Jon Langford (The Mekons) uses the classified ads section of the Chicago Reader to assemble a band of musicians who had never met, and to have the band rehearse and cut a song together -- a cover of "Rocket Man" -- all in one day.

This is great kinda funny but long, so if you want to just hear the song go to part two at the end.

I want to be Christoper Walken if I grow up.

Uploaded on Nov 15, 2007
WGN's Emmy Award-winning Jeff Hoover takes his crack at impersonating Oscar-winner Christoper Walken, with Grammy-winner John Tesh on piano (now that's quite a trifecta of award winners, even if one of them really isn't there). Jeff also puts his version of Walken in a bear suit, for reasons unknown but funny nonetheless.
