Elvis Costello on His Reputation, Memories of His Father, and Writing Music for Friends

Elvis Costello grew up surrounded by music. His mother ran the record section of Selfridges, and his father was an accomplished working musician. As Costello describes in his memoir, Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink, he didn't intend to make music himself, but felt eventually drawn to it.

The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and record producer has enjoyed a long career, working on his own and collaborating with other musicians like Burt Bacharach, Paul McCartney, and Annie Lennox.

Elvis Costello joins Jesse to talk about his father’s career and love of music, why Alzheimer’s in his family inspired him to write the book, and who knows him by his birth name, Declan McManus.

This interview originally aired in 2015.

Suggested talking points: Glasswatch, Shark Cuban, Bung’s A Bung’s A Bung, Sudsy Substitution, Special Guestpert: Bridget Lancaster, Schiff in the Mix, Doose Guck

Paula has an audition coming up, so it’s fitting that we’re looking into Looking Good and Feeling Good. First, plastic surgeon Dr. David Rosenberg explains what it takes to take away a tattoo - how do you get that anchor removed from your bulging forearm before you apply for that job at the spinach factory. Then, therapist Marc Weiss explains how to cope with anxiety, and how Paula can conquer it before her audition. Also - hot sauce! Is “El Diablo” actually the work of the Devil?

What do you do when you have too much bag? Are you a thermos or a jacket person? It’s the Ginuwine “Pony” album of podcasts!
