Looney Tunes
There were two great things on Fresh Air yesterday:

1. A long interview with John Flansburgh and John Linnell of They Might Be Giants.

2. A history of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. The Bonzos performed their song "Death Cab for Cutie" in the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour movie. Bonzo Neil Innes was a good friend of the Monty Python boys and can be seen in the films Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl. Innes was also Ron Nasty of the Rutles. Click here to listen to Innes sing "How Sweet to Be an Idiot," a song he performed at the Python's Hollywood Bowl show, sounding more than a little like John Lennon. Many more Neil Innes songs can be heard here. Years ago, Terry Gross interviewed Innes.
