A Waste Of Time with ItsTheReal
QUARANTINE RADIO with Ezra Koenig, Parks and Joseph Patel
Today on Episode 51 of Quarantine Radio, we make calls from our Upper West Side apartment, first to Los Angeles to check in on Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig - Ezra talks how his decade-long friendship with Dave 1 of Chromeo took them from the campus of Columbia University to the stage of Staples Center as Grammy award winners, what it was like when Larry David stopped by his internet radio show, how he compares Seinfeld and Curb, how the lockdown has affected his creativity, how fatherhood has affected his creativity, how much he can stay away from social media, what he thinks of the Upper West Side, and much more! We then dial over to Astoria, Queens to connect with Parks from the Joe Budden Podcast - Parks discusses how the JBP team has found their way back to A+ audio for their remote shows, whether he'd considered being on camera during this time, how he uses the JBP lights and background to increase the quality of his personal Zooms, what it was like to save the day during the Premier and RZA Verzuz battle, what DJ sets he's impressed by on IG, how he prefers to use compression on a recording, and much more! And finally, we ring up Brooklyn to catch up with filmmaker Joseph Patel - Joseph reminisces on his groundbreaking MTV series My Block, going to the strip club with Three 6 Mafia, going to Houston to meet UGK, and missing out on a Toronto trip featuring Drake, how editing his current project has allowed his mind to stay away from the heaviness outside, how the current film landscape changes expectations for releases, the joy of artists sharing their music and their stories for free on IG live, attending Questlove's incredible movie-themed birthday party a few months back, and much more!
