Anybody else remember a TV show called "Sessions at West 54th"? I seem to recall many excellent performances shown there. If any archives of the recordings remain, they appear to be locked up somewhere (maybe Amazon Prime has some?). Too bad. Little bits and pieces can be found. Like this gem of a performance from Ani DiFranco:

I think David Byrne hosted the show for a little bit, and he also performed on it. Here is a very David Byrne performance of "Psycho Killer". CW Byrne is dressed in a suit that looks like a human body with no skin.

Oh geez, this reminded me of something I haven't thought about in years. David Byrne is still doing his "radio" show after all this time. Wild:
