Loudon Wainwright III - Words and Music - 2012

Loudon Wainwright III had just settled into WFUV's Studio A when a heavy light came crashing down, inches from his head. Some artists might be rightfully spooked, but Loudon smiled, made a lawsuit joke and moved on. After all, this is the man who just wrote a whole record about mortality: Older than My Old Man Now

Fathers & Sons

by John Platt

This week the Sunday Breakfast celebrates Easter and Passover and the release of Adam Cohen's new CD. Adam will be my guest in Studio A, performing songs and relating what it's like to be the son of an icon, Leonard Cohen. Apparently he had something of an epiphany at the dinner table, with his son on one side and his father on the other, as he realized he wanted to make an album worthy of his father's legacy. The result was Like a Man, an album of intimate, authentic songs from start to finish.

For his latest movie, Loudon Wainwright III learned the script in a whole new way, because this time he was also writing the soundtrack. The result is the album 'Strange Weirdos: Music from and Inspired by the Film Knocked Up,' and Loudon came by Studio-A to share a few of the songs with host Darren DeVivo.

Loudon Wainwright III is nearing the 40 year mark in his career, and with the new album 'Recovery' he's revisiting and reworking some of the songs that got him started. The record also reunites the eccentric songwriter with 'Strange Weirdos' producer Joe Henry and brought Loudon back to WFUV for a solo, acoustic performance, and a chat with Claudia Marshall.
