Episode 23 opens with Tom Waits talking jive and ends with a very excellent track off the very excellent new Arms EP (it's their second EP and it's called EP2). And in between those two bookends, well, there's another guy talking jive, some songs about leaving and coming back home… which were probably brought on by the Happy Trendy track that samples a mom leaving voice mail messages, plus a bunch of other great stuff.
So, if that sounds like a decent soundtrack for an hour of your day, then remember to press play when that hour strikes.
