It is wonderful to tune in and catch up on the latest about Wilco happenings.

From Grammy Mccar greetings to MMA 3 and even WGN weathman...

 

It's interesting that Jeff has lately refered to Wilco as being a "pop" band.

Freedom to play all popular genres? ( lets hope/ sky is the limit ).

The expanding scope of Wilco's music influence is evident in the R&B/ Blues arena with the Mavis Staples up coming show with JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound as opener. ( of course with JC Brooks' blues cover of IATTBYH )

And yet again today, on NPR, some kind of an interlude on a between-shows news update: a few bars of "She's a Jar", which confused me for a minute because that's my cellphone ringtone, and I was reaching in my purse when I realized the sound was coming from the radio. :blink

Let me set the scene. I'm in the truck, windows down on a 65 degree sunny Kentucky afternoon. I've just picked up my girls (6 & 4) from the babysitter and a detour is in order...its way too pretty out. We are winding thru a local, densely wooded park with sunlight beaming thru the leaves where it can. Josh Ritter's "Light of My Lantern" goes off of the excellent local public radio station and I hear those sweet first few strums...ah "California Stars". Made our day.

Doesn't exactly fit the criteria, but was watching the most recent House of Lies and one of the guys said " turn your frown upside down.". I have some live show, must be a Tweedy show (from D.C. I think) where he banters about being embarrassed by that lyric. So that qualifies as a " Wilco heard while out and about", I think.
