While I’m not typically one for April Fool’s jokes, I would have laughed at “Alec Baldwin interviews Thom Yorke.” But it’s no joke: Baldwin interviewed Yorke for his WNYC program Here’s the Thing. Click above to listen, or grab the podcast through iTunes or your pod catcher of choice.
Baldwin doesn’t seem to know much about the music — “Creep” is so old that I think by now we’re all tired of stories about how they don’t even play “Creep” any more — but it doesn’t hamper the interview. It’s a surprisingly intimate affair. If you like Yorke or Radiohead or just have an hour to fill, this is worth your time.
