If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
WC: Animal Collective's "Strawberry Jam."
Favorite song to dance/rock out to when you think no one's watching?
WC: "So Haunted" by Cut Copy. Nothing's better than minor-key guitar riffs and gorgeous synths.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
WC: The Yellow Linguistics. Against our better judgment, we'd turn Robert Hass poems into lo-fi, punk-ish bites.
Theme song during Ivies?
WC: Either "Here Should Be My Home" by No Age or The Hold Steady's "Cattle & The Creeping Things."
If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
WC: Miles Davis without a doubt?one of the country's greatest musical minds of all time.
Best new music you've heard lately?
WC: No Age. Musically literate lo-fi punk-pop straight from LA. Their freshman full-length "Nouns" is one of the best things to hit the shelves this year.
If you could time travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
WC: Probably the '50s and early '60s. I couldn't imagine huddling over a turntable listening as Miles Davis and his compadres changed modern music as we know it with every record they released.
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
WC: Discovering Radiohead opened a whole new world a few years back, but Guided By Voices and Animal Collective inform a lot of the music I listen to now.
"Magical Mystery Tour" with Will airs Mondays from 2-3 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM. or online at www.wbor.org.
