Tom talks about the Beach Boys ("great to keep dust off your turntable"), the first LPs he bought (Harry the Hipster, James Brown, Lord Buckley), his 60s influences, Herb Cohen and his client Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention (opening for Zappa for 3 tours), talks about making chump change opening for the Eagles, small clubs, Martin Mull, Bonnie Raitt, Tim Buckley, diners of the world, followed by an excerpt from Nighthawks At The Diner, and Tom explains how he wrote it and other songs.
He ends the interview with the suggestion that he is "gettin' thirsty" and the interviewer gets the cue that talk is over.
