Craig Finn - FUV Live Guest DJ - 2014
From the lyrics he sings, it's plain that Craig Finn is a wordsmith and someone who enjoys language and storytelling. And as Sydney Greenstreet said to Humphrey Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon," I'm a man who enjoys talking to a man who likes to talk! The Hold Steady are wrapping up this year with two shows (December 30 and 31) at the Music Hall of Williamsburg with fellow Brooklynites The So So Glos. As a lead-in to those spirited shows, enjoy some on-air conversation with Craig as he joins FUV Live for a guest DJ stint.
Among other things, we spoke about his five favorite albums of 2014 from The War On Drugs, The Donkeys, Wussy, Strand of Oaks and Protomartyr. We also compared notes on the glorious show at Forest Hills Stadium that The Replacements did in September. Craig went on the record that they are his all-time favorite band – no surprise with his Minneapolis roots, but good to hear nonetheless.
