Songs about writing — and authors, and in some cases reading — on this very literary WAFFLES!, starting with the free jazz of Ornette Coleman and ending with a novel cover of the Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” by the B-52s. In the interim, everything from Prince to Lana Del Rey, from Dexy’s Midnight Runners to Nick Cave, from Paul Simon to Emily Haines… join us!
