Quote of the Day: David Sedaris Likes to Pretend He’s the Aretha Franklin Who Got Away


Funnyman David Sedaris showed up on KCRW’s Guest DJ Project yesterday and explained he was never a “big rock guy.” Shocking. What does he prefer to listen to instead? Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Joni Mitchell, Betty Carter and Aretha Franklin, because he relates to them more. Especially when he’s pretending to be on stage singing “Until You Come Back to Me,” which is almost as entertaining as imagining him working as an elf named Crumpet at Macy’s. Almost.
