Nerdist Host Chris Hardwick is Our Guest DJ

Written by

When I asked DJ Dan Wilcox if he wanted to host a Guest DJ Project set with Chris Hardwick, he responded with an enthusiastic YES!

He was a big fan of Chris’ comedy musical duo Hard ‘n’ Phirm and their bluegrass-inspired take on Radiohead’s big hits.

And, whaddya know, Chris picked a Radiohead song for his Guest DJ set!  But he actually got serious about why he loves them so much, describing how “Let Down” captured an era for him. He also tells us about the beginnings of his geekdom – hosting radio shows in his grandfather’s house – and explains why Neil Finn is one of the best songwriters of all time.

As a bonus, you get a couple of impressions — including Barry Gibbs and Paul McCartney.

Check it all out here.


p.s.: comedy fans, coming soon: sets from Zach Galifianakis, Paul F Tompkins and Garfunkel and Oates’ Kate Micucci.
