How great is this... AM Taxi (Adam, Chris and Jay) jump in the
Mazda (courtesy of the Autobarn Mazda of Evanston, 1015 Chicago
Avenue) for an interview and in-car performance! The band's new
album, "Shiver By Me," is an easy album to fall in love with. I'm
playing it as I type this description, in fact.
Making this episode even better is the presence of Lou Malnati's
pizza. I've been eating Lou's since childhood, and I've enjoyed

from the Wicker Park carry out location (1520 N Damen Ave, Chicago,

- After being in the scene as long as Adam has (including his
time and long-running and wonderful Lucky Boys Confusion), what's
- My problem remembering names: Can't we all agree to remind
people who we are after meeting them a long time ago?
- I went record shopping at Reckless before recording. Was it to
impress AM Taxi?
- Should Wicker Park pizza places offer free beards as a gift
