Early warning: I'm going to be on WNYC's Soundcheck this Thursday with Ben Folds.
From the Soundcheck site:
Revenge of the A Cappella Nerds
For years, college a cappella groups lived in the shadows, hiding their extracurricular indiscretions behind a veil of shame. But sweet harmonies are nerdy no more. University-based a cappella groups are touring the world, and some of the best appear on a new compilation CD curated by alternative rock icon Ben Folds. Folds joins GQ senior editor Mickey Rapkin, author of “Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory," to tell us about the college a cappella craze.
More Soundcheck info here. Tune in on Thursday at 2pm!
