If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
JP: Steven Isserlis' recording of the Bach Cello Suites.
WT: Dave Matthews Band, "Live at Red Rocks."
Favorite song to privately dance/rock out to?
JP: "Sweet and Dandy" by Toots and the Maytals.
WT: Probably "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by the Temptations.
If you were in a band, what would it be called and what kind of music would you play?
JP: Elbow, and we'd use silence very effectively. Other than that, it'd be pretty open.
WT: Either Gold Lion or Caramel Delight and we'd create cryptic, funk-laden jazzy euphoria. With heavy organs. And spectacles like Dave Brubeck.
Theme song during Ivies?
JP: "Lost in the Supermarket" by The Clash.
WT: Talking Heads' "Burning Down the House."
If you could meet any musician, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
JP: David Bowie. He's all-around amazing.
WT: David Byrne. He has to be one of the most elusive and enigmatic figures in modern music. I would also like a Big Suit.
Best new music you've heard lately?
JP: The Ralph Alessi quintet that played at Bowdoin last Friday.
WT: Milkman. But I have spent most of my time recently listening to The Clash, New Order, and Bob Dylan.
If you could time-travel back to any musical period, where would you go and why?
JP: The '60s and '70s, because all the musical excitement and experimentation in rock as well as the classical realm would blow my mind.
WT: The 1980s, for the illustrious use of keyboards and the creative fusion of styles. I would also like to see the Talking Heads' "Stop Making Sense" tour.
Bands/musicans who have most influenced your musical taste?
JP: Bach, Bowie, Brahms, and Radiohead.
WT: Perhaps Herbie Hancock, Bob Dylan, and Talking Heads.
"Ice Cream Soup" with Jimmy and Wilson airs Wednesdays from 5:30-7 p.m. on WBOR 91.1 FM.
