“House” is one of my favorite shows on TV and I’m so excited that one of our Guest DJ Project participants is joining the cast! Former “Joan of Arcadia” star Amber Tamblyn will appear in multiple episodes, playing a brilliant med student who joins Dr. House’s team. The show’s seventh season gets underway tonight!

Amber was a hoot when she came in to tape her Guest DJ set. She’s a firecracker and has really eclectic music tastes. One of her song picks – “Old Fashioned Morphine” – made it into my personal iTunes after she played it for us. Check out her full set here.

She also shares some really funny and poignant stories about other songs that have inspired her throughout her life, including the first song that made her feel sexy and how she mistakenly discovered prog rock.

Hear her full set online and check out the track lists below!
