Ed Schrader rages NYC

Baltimore's best experimental talk show host Ed Schrader hit the road last week for a special Brooklyn session featuring interviews with Michael Showalter and Dan Deacon, among others.

Hundreds of people rolled into the Masonic Temple where Schrader set up camp. ...

Most of them came to see Deacon perform, Schrader said. But they quickly fell under Schrader's spell.  

"They were all really restless when they got there, but they really got into it," Schrader said. "I was able to tame them and get them into it."

Schrader's show was only supposed to be 45 minutes long, but ended up lasting a whopping 90 minutes. They ran into some technical problems with mikes, but everything worked out in the end.

"It was a beast!" he said.

Clips will be up on YouTube soon.
