It's probably clear to you by now that I like Bright Eyes — a fact that I am sometimes embarrassed to admit. I am proud, however, to be a fan of All Songs Considered, NPR's very cool online radio show featuring set lists and concerts from both beloved and obscure artists. So imagine my delight when Pitchfork informed me that Bright Eyes singer/songwriter/egoist/jack-of-all-trades Conor Oberst will be a guest DJ on this afternoon's show.
We've already heard one great track off the new Bright Eyes album, Cassadaga, coming out April 10. But you can bet Conor will shed some more light on the subject during his interview with host Bob Boilen, as well as with his set list, which will likely include his own songs and his favorite tracks from other musicians. I'll be listening to the show for sure, so if you tune in, tell me what you think.
