If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
KG: Puccini's "La Bohème" conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham.
JK: Initially my answer was "Tigermilk" by Belle and Sebastian, but I have to pick "Greatest Hits of 1720" because I will probably still love it when I am 60.
Favorite song to privately dance/rock out to?
KG: "Danger! High Voltage" by the Electric Six.
JK: Billy Idol's "Dancing with Myself" perhaps tied with Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark."
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
KG: Captain Starboard and the Lobsters. The lead singer would wear a pirate-y sailor costume and all other band members would be dressed as lobsters. We would play covers of motown hits and folksy ballads about maritime adventures.
JK: It would be called Blink 5. We would probably air-play Blink 182 covers and I would be the hand clapper. Except, I am already in that band.Theme song during Ivies?
KG: "Big Trouble" by Man Man.
JK: "We Are Your Friends" by Justice vs. Simian.
If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
KG: Tom Leher. I have all of his old LPs and have come to define my adolescence by songs like "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" and "I Hold Your Hand in Mine."
JK: Tom Waits. I would enjoy listening to his voice/grumble. I also wouldn't mind hanging out with Regina Spektor on account of her cuteness.
Best new music you've heard lately?
KG: A three-way tie between Anathallo's "Canopy Glow," Hercules and Love Affair's self-titled, and Antony and the Johnsons' "I Am a Bird Now."
JK: Mac Family Band. They mix swell beats.
If you could time travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
KG: Since I sing opera, I would want to go back to its golden age in the mid to late 19th century to try my hand at becoming a diva.
JK: I would go back to the romantic period to wear frills and hang with Dvorák and Beethoven.
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
KG: Belle and Sebastian, Battles, Beach House, Of Montreal, Portugal The Man, Maps & Atlases, and Cole Porter.
JK: Mostly Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra (PACO) but also Bob Dylan and the Velvet Underground.
"Mixtapes" with Kristina and Jin airs Sundays from 8-9 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
