Founder of the alt/punk group Throwing Muses, frontrunner of the alt band 50 Foot Wave, and old friend Kristin Hersh catches up with Grant-Lee on this week’s Shortwave. Kristin talks about how she decided to write her own memoir after a journalist insisted on moving in with her, describes her relationship with Betty Hutton, shares a story about being in an airport with Vic Chesnutt, and tells us how James Hillman knew she was going to be a musician at the age of 9. She also reads an excerpt from her daring memoir “Rat Girl.” Plus, we’re treated to a couple of live songs from her extensive catalogue including her latest solo record “Crooked.”
