Top five desert island albums?
JW: A smorgasborg of regular albums and soundtracks: "Goodnight and Good Luck;" "Before Sunrise;" "High Fidelity;" "O Brother, Where Art Thou;" "Motorcycle Diaries."
KE: Paul Simon's "Graceland;" Bright Eyes's "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning;" Postal Service's "Give Up;" Rilo Kiley's "The Execution of All Things;" The Beatles's "Magical Mystery Tour."
Theme song on a Monday morning?
JW: "Wagon Wheel" by Old Crow Medicine Show.
Soundtrack on a Saturday night?
JW: "Come Sail Away" by Styx.
What's the first album you ever bought?
JW: "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," narrated by Boris Karloff, which I think my mom bought me for Hanukkah.
KE: *NSYNC's "No Strings Attached." Or maybe "Now That's What I Call Music 3."
What's your guilty music pleasure?
JW: Save your guilt. Styx is pure pleasure.
KE: Girl pop: Shakira, KT Tunstall, Natasha Bedingfield.
What's the best live show you've ever seen?
JW: Tough call, but it's gotta go to Raffi. I was only four, but I knew that s--- was baller. My dad's band, Parental Guidance, was also pretty sweet.
KE: Nickel Creek, because they're amazing musicians, and it was an outdoor concert on a really nice night in July.
If you were the dictator of a small country, what would your national anthem be?
JW: Well, I was going to say "Jessica" by the Allman Brothers, but I'm changing my answer to "Blue" by that random, possibly French, band, mostly because it would be really funny to hear masses of people sing that in unison.
KE: Probably "Kate" by Ben Folds Five. I would be the dictator, after all.
If you were going into battle, what song would be blasting on your iPod?
JW: Soundtrack-wise, probably something from the Boondock Saints. Or "Into the West" by Annie Lennox from Lord of the Rings. But I can't promise that Mulan wouldn't mysteriously make its way onto my playlist.
KE: Probably "A Better Son/Daughter" by Rilo Kiley.
Artist/band you banked on making it big and then they broke up:
JW: Let's just say "Songs from the Silver Screen" wasn't always just the name of our radio show. How's that solo career going, Epstein? Yep, let a whole lot of recorder skill go to waste with that one. Also I saw "That Thing You Do" when I was pretty young, and I thought it was a real band, so I kept hoping they would get back together. Which made subsequent film appearances by Tom Hanks very confusing to me for some time.
"Songs From the Silver Screen" with Kate and Jess airs Thursdays from 9:30-10:30 a.m. WBOR 91.1 FM.
