As we ring in the new year we want to say thank you to all the listeners. Today we dig into the Shortwave archives to enjoy some live performances from guests such as Aimee Mann, Glen Phillips, Susanna Hoffs, Rhett Miller, YACHT, and much more.

Again, you had me at Rhett. But, Mr. Miller, do you think "a pint of ale" is enough to wish Jennifer good luck with her...with her bottom?

This was one of the most well crafted shows Earwolf has put out. I only listened to a few episodes of this, but put this one on for my daughters in the car today. It was so well executed between the structure, recap of episodes and songs, that it really struck me. The reads on the commercials were the best in the business as well.

Great stuff, just great stuff.

I'm sad to see this go away, too.

It seems that all the comedians and musicians know each other in LA, though. The Largo/UCB crowd seems to be tight-knit. Think someone else could take up the mantle? Please? For the love of god?

I really, really miss this show. Not much more I can say than that.

So wait, is Short-wave done for good? I thought there was just a break for Grant to tour/write/have a family?

It appears that we're on an indefinite hiatus with Shortwave. We're really happy with the episodes we did have though, but sometimes our podcasts end up being more of a series than on ongoing production.

Grant's great, so you should check his website to keep track of what he's up to!
