Oct 22, 2010 Bookmark and Share

And now, for weird news of the day. Ira Glass, beloved, bespectacled host of This American Life…is making his singing debut. On Lucy Wainwright Roche’s (sister of Martha and Rufus) album. And the pair is covering… Elliott Smith song “Say Yes.” If you need a moment to digest that, rest assured you’re not alone. Check out the video below of the unlikely pair performing live, and head over to Roche’s site to hear a stream of the studio versions. (As for Glass’ voice, well, he’s no Kermit the Frog…)
