Tune in to WNYC on Friday, May 18, and hear your humble Dilettante discuss the new cabaret scene with the lovely Amy Eddings on "All Things Considered"; not sure about the exact time but the show airs from 4 to 6:30pm.
Completely unrelated: leaving the manipulative Frost/Nixon (turns out the disgraced prez was an endearing old coot!) yesterday evening, we saw Tom Wolfe, or at least an amazing Tom Wolfe lookalike. The white suit was exactly as I imagined it'd be, but my favorite sartorial touch is that he was wearing spats. Upon hearing this, a colleague joked that Wolfe would probably be buried in jeans and a T-shirt.
