  • Produced for WCAI's Sonic IDs
    (Part of a collaboration between Transom and Cowbird)

    Notes from Jay Allison

    The redoubtable Bianca Giaever was our intern for a while and made a lot of good Sonic IDs. In fact, she got so enthused about them, she created The Sonic IDs Podcast, which you can download off iTunes if you're as zealous as she is.

    She went to the flea market one day and got around 100 little stories. About this one, she says, "This guy was around 7 feet tall, so I had to stand close and hold my microphone straight over my head to interview him. He taught me that there can be a secret joy to a perfectly horrible day."

    Words to live by.
