Product Notes

Called 'Chicago's wittiest radio essayist,' by the Chicago Sun-Times, Dave McBride's four minute cerebral excursions down meandering tributaries of his comic stream of consciousness entertained thousands daily for more than a decade. Here, he contemplates assuming control of the local NPR station, ('Chicago's premier recourse for Madagascan separatist issues, and for the recounting of why percussion is key to Basque folk dances and how they differ subtly from mazurkas'); helps a teenager from Texas realize his dream to become a drum major; and explains his ambition to become a full-blown coot. With the hip of a Dennis Miller and the wit of a Richard Armour, he enlists his audience to put on it's thinking cap. PRESS QUOTES: 'A tightly scripted string of pop-culture observations and parenthetical asides ... a densely packed combination of obscure historical references and goofball tabloid stories; sentenses so long and convoluted a whole flock of nuns could spend an hour diagramming just one.' - Chicago Tribune 'Dave McBride has compiled a collection of his 32 most frequently requested essays known as 'Dave's Raves.' McBride's stream-of-consciousness gems include the title track 'A Nail in the Head,' a masterpiece of his droll humor.' - Chicago Sun-Times 'Voted best three minutes on Chicago radio ... a verbose symphony of rambling non-sequiturs, odd lexicography, random quotes and freakishly obtuse vocabulary, plus some bizarro science and history facts thrown in for good measure.' - Newcity 'Veteran newsman Dave McBride is perhaps the funniest man in the world.' - Daily Herald.
