Episode Info:

Syd Straw's sweet, soulful voice has resonated through the last 30 years of American music, from her acclaimed solo work, to her own bands Bitchface and The Golden Palominos (featuring R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe), to her collaborations and guest appearances with everyone from Pat Benatar to Rickie Lee Jones to Wilco. She's also a familiar voice in the world of comedy, having recurred on Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete and Pete, and anyone who's seen her live knows that Syd's between-song patter is easily as funny as any standup. So this is an episode you won't want to miss, especially since it features two in-studio acoustic performances.

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Syd's friend Gary Stewart, a towering figure in the L.A. music community and beyond.
