If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
NC: Traveling Wilburys' "Volume 1."
SL: Meatloaf's "A Bat Out of Hell." Depending on how I feel, sometimes it is the only album in my life and often it's the only one I listen to.
Favorite song to privately dance/rock out to?
NC: "Africa" by Toto, but let's be honest, I rock out to that with people around too.
SL: Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," especially in the shower or when I need a little pick-me-up.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
NC: "Angry Markos." I'd play underground hip-hop indie.
SL: "The Jam Masticators a.k.a. MassJam a.k.a Ja-mass," known to our critics as AssJam, and we'd play rock-funk-jazz or reggae (depending on the weather). Our lyrics wouldn't make much sense but at least no one would ever know when the concert ended and the after-party began.
Theme song during Ivies?
NC: "Come Sail Away" by Styx.
SL: "Come Sail Away" by Styx and anything by Journey or Southern rap.
If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
NC: Bruce Springsteen, but that might go against the WBOR alternative trend. I think he'd have some words of wisdom without being pretentious and seems like a generally fun guy.
SL: Jerry Garcia, because I can only imagine how sweet an experience it would be to spend even an hour in the same room as him, especially jamming out.
Best new music you've heard lately?
NC: "The Powder Kegs," who claim to play "rock and roll like before it meant anything."
SL: WBOR is the only radio I listen to but recently I downloaded James Brown, "Live at the Apollo 1968"... I'm not really sure when that came out though.
If you could time travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
NC: Probably the 1980s so I could permanently get away with dressing like a Racer X concert.
SL: Either the late '50s where I'd check out early jazz clubs or the '70s; I'd be a Dead Head. Both seem like pretty cool scenes that still focused on the music.
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
NC: Bruce Springsteen and Thelonious Monk.
SL: The Grateful Dead, The Band, The Beatles, Miles Davis, Bob Marley, The Buena Vista Social Club, Dr. Dre, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Pink Floyd.
"End of the Line" with Nick and Simon airs Saturdays from 2-3 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
