In this episode: Until his recent move to L.A., comedian Kurt Braunohler was one of the "50 Funniest New Yorkers" according to Time Out NY. Braunohler talks about his debut comedy album How Do I Land?.

Then, a listener recently asked us "Who are the Keith Emersons and Rick Wakemans of today?" It got us thinking who are the progressive rock keyboard stars of these days? We try to get to the bottom of it.

And the endlessly prolific garage rocker Ty Segall performs songs from his latest record Sleeper, a quietly intense, and mostly-acoustic reflection of his recent life.

Guests:

Kurt Braunohler and Ty Segall

Who Are The Keyboard Virtuosos Of Today?

Our listener Geoffrey recently left us a voicemail posing an interesting question: who are the virtuosic keyboard players of today -- à la '70s prog rock heroes Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman

Stephen Fortner, editor-in-chief of Keyboard Magazine, joins us to help get to the bottom of our listener Geoffrey's question -- and to talk about the identity crisis that keyboards are facing today.
