Wednesday, April 22nd, 3pm - 6pm: Jon Langford PLUS Joe Frank - "Sleep"
Noted painter and comic strip artist Jon Langford will be Irwin's guest on Weds. April 22 at 3pm. Langford, a UK native who has lived in Chicago since the early 1990s, has been lauded for his iconic portraits of country music legends and diabolic figures, which have graced galleries, album covers, books, and beer bottles. Those in the art world might not be aware that Langford has a musical side. He was a founding member of the Mekons, and has performed and recorded with the Waco Brothers, the Sadies, the Three Johns, the Old 97s, Sally Timms, Alejandro Escovedo, Rosie Flores, the Pine Valley Cosmonauts, and the Beatles. Langford will bring along his paint brush and his electric guitar, one of which will be used on the WFMU airwaves. On May 21, WFMU will screen the documentary, Monty Hall performance space.

One-hour dramas by Joe Frank air alternate Wednesdays at 4pm (Eastern) on Irwin's program. The episode "Sleep," from Joe's Work in Progress series, airs Weds. April 22nd. A child dressed for bed attends an adult party where he witnesses a murder. Joe confesses past sins and appeals to God for leniency. A man calls an escort service and describes his ideal woman, but is deeply disappointed with the escort who arrives, who is ugly, overweight and shallow. Still, he falls in love with her.
