This guest contestant on this week's "Not My Job" segment of the NPR quiz show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, is Jeff Tweedy, one of the founding members of the group Wilco. I try to post these each week, though I don't embed all of them. But Mr. Tweedy made the cut -- an inside joke when you hear his very amusing interview with host Peter Sagal -- for one specific reason. As readers of these pages know, one of my friends is the tech guru whiz Ed Bott of ZDNet -- and Wilco is probably one of Ed's two favorite bands in the world, and he will go great distances to see them perform. Or at least reasonable distance. But he doesn't have to go far to hear this, nor do you, since clicking on the audio player will do the trick. What I didn't know, but learned from the interview, is that Jeff Tweedy has lived in Chicago for the past 25 years. He talks about that, as well as tells two long and very funny stories.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
