This episode of “Break Your Radio” contains a secret treasure.
Actually, it’s not very secret at all (though it is shiny and valuable). Contained herein is an interview with David Meiklejohn, the editor-director of the new “romantic documentary” called My Heart Is An Idiot, which features Davy Rothbart.
Love those skipping records, hey? Lets you know there are real people in a real, live radio station. the ice man, the schoolteach-the ice man, the schoolteach-the ice man, the schoolteach-the ice man, the schoolteach-the ice man, the schoolteach-the ice man, the schoolteach-the ice man, the schoolteach-because their lips were all puckered up.

Disclaimer: Due to the thrill of a first interview with someone so distinguished as David, my flustered self neglected to mention two things, which you may or may not discover as you listen to the show. (1) Leading in to the interview, I tell you that the most recent track is by Heavy Trash. Not so! My voice invades after a collaboration between Bullfrog and George Clinton, who played after Heavy Trash, who played after John Spencer Blues Explosion. And (b) after the honky-tonk piano concludes, I play a couple tracks by local artists. You’ll hear their three songs before hearing about Toronto’s North By Northeast music festival–the artists are Benoit Pioulard, Laurel & Halolos, and Seth Bernard, and they show up on the soundtrack to My Heart Is An Idiot.
