  Former Soul Coughing frontman, singer, and guitarist Mike Doughty has released two and a half solo albums in a more singer-songwriter vein than his work with that musical mish-mashing ensemble. He's still got the fine tunes and jazzy wordplay, but he's mining more personal territory -- yearning, but also edgy and funny. He sings six great songs accompanied by his lively acoustic guitar playing, and we visit some inbetween numbers. Thanks to Glenn Luttman for engineering.

Listener comments!

  12:46pm Christiane:

... I like it! It sounds a bit like one of my mixtapes - "across country" (do you say that in english?). I found WFMU because I visited Mike Doughty's website - I'll stay here for longer! Thanks! Christiane.
  9:31pm Charlie:

I am very happy to think that my show might live up to your mix tapes! Yes, please spend some time with us at WFMU.
