WFMU's Irwin Chusid has been up to no good.
In addition to playing Fountains of Wayne twice on his radio program this week, he's been consorting with other dark forces. Irwin has just co-written (with Barbara Economon) and released his 3rd book on the artwork of Jim Flora, an illustrator from the '40s and '50s who is known for his great album covers, childrens' books, the occasional (posthumous) piece of WFMU swag, and generally creepy undertones beneath a cheery facade. This third volume of Flora visual treats includes newly-discovered artwork that Irwin himself dug out of a time capsule that was buried in a top-secret location. Or maybe I made up that last part.
