About the Show

On this week's show, our Pop Song Correspondences features a customer befuddled by the process of buying a Little Red Corvette from a used car salesman named Prince. Plus, comedian Rob Delaney as a customer service representative from Kleiner Appliance who knows the truth about angels lodged inside household appliances, and Neko Case and Kelly Hogan prove they're more than amazing singer/songwriters – they've got strong comedic chops, too.

Twitter Highlights

The Guests


Rob Delaney


Rob Delaney won Comedy Central's award for "Funniest Person on Twitter" in 2012. His standup comedy special is Rob Delaney Live at the Bowery Ballroom, and his television credits include Comedy Central's Key & Peele and FUEL TV's The Daily Habit. Random House will publish Rob's first novel later this year.


Neko Case


Neko Case is a Grammy-nominated solo artist and one-eighth of the celebrated Canadian pop outfit the New Pornographers. The Washington-bred singer, songwriter and producer claims no genre, nor utilizes any classic formula for her songs and singing. Neko has developed a sound all her own: a mix of country, gospel, torch, and pop, and her five full-length solo albums (not to mention her two live collections and Canadian Amp EP) have won her critical acclaim and countless devotees.


Kelly Hogan


Known as a consummate "singer's singer," Atlanta native Kelly Hogan is a multi-faceted solo artist and sought-after vocal collaborator (Neko Case, Mavis Staples, Andrew Bird, Jakob Dylan, Alejandro Escovedo) whose warm, Southern persona and powerful voice have left their mark on countless recordings and live performances.
