They Might Be Giants’ John Flansburgh vs. Richard Winham

“I don’t ever talk to anybody who’s older than me,” John Flansburgh says in this interview with WUTC 88.1 FM’s Richard Winham.  Both Flansburgh and Winham have been in the music business for decades.  Winham, the host of WUTC’s afternoon music show, started his radio career in 1972.  Flansburgh’s music career began in 1982, when he and John Linnell founded the band They Might Be Giants.  In this extended, informal conversation, Winham doesn’t exactly interview Flansburgh–instead, these two music-industry veterans wind up interviewing each other, comparing their musical tastes and contrasting their perspectives on rock, punk and pop.

Winham interviewed Flansburgh in advance of They Might Be Giants’ Chattanooga show at Track 29 on February 12th, 2012.

    Thank you for this! Flansburgh is one of those guys I’d love to have a drink with and talk about music, and this podcast lets me do that vicariously through the conversation. Awesome!

    I love hearing John talk about music. I ran by him on the street in nyc once recently (as a fan I recognized him) and I knew a museum of knowledge just walked by.
