All Songs Considered: Guest DJ -- Will Sheff Of Okkervil River

(The first song by the activist Selda is intense 1970s Turkish music--I now have a copy of the CD!)

Guest DJ: Will Sheff Of Okkervil River
All Songs Considered (NPR)

Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff shares some of his favorite (and fairly obscure) music with All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. The two talk about Okkervil River's latest album, The Stand-Ins and listen to some of the songs Sheff has loved and been inspired by over the years. Hear music from soul singer Lorraine Ellison, the 1960s Jamaican group Carlton and the Shoes, former teen idol-turned introspective singer Dion, and The Penetrators — a 1970s band some would call punk, others would call garage rock.
