Patton Oswalt might have missed his calling. Okay, he didn't really — if we had been denied his unbelievably hilarious, smart, biting comedy, it'd be a shame. But when he does his old-style "laid-back public radio announcer voice," you will bust a gut laughing at how on-the-money he is. Plus, he has a genuinely awesome taste in music — this despite his own "horrible tastes" he had growing up in suburban Virginia, "going to see Genesis play stadium shows."

Patton Oswalt was kind enough to come in a couple weeks ago to record a Theft of the Dial session with us when he was in town for his appearance on Wits at the Fitzgerald Theater.
