From the Archives: Dave Frishberg Spends "Quality Time" in the Fresh Air Studio.

An interview with Dave Frishberg is rebroadcast during the first half of the show. A Grammy nominee in 1998, Frishberg is noted for his music which draws its inspiration from jazz classics but whose lyrics are quirky modern originals about neurosis, and the oddities of contemporary life. (ORIGINAL BROADCAST MAY 22, 1998 and 12/2795).
