Move over Adrian Cronauer, Barry, and Grant Mazzy!

There's a new sheriff in the radio booth. The oft-mimicked and irreplaceable Christopher Walken recently tried his hand at radio, filling in for NPR's Leonard Lopate the other day. There's no cowbell, nor strange monologues about wristwatches, but it's completely delightful. This is 100% earnest Walken, chatting with friends and a slew of other guests, namely: Tony winners Jack O'Brien and Richard Easton, Zoe Kazan (Me and Orson Welles, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee), Eddie Izzard in a quick drive-by, dancers Jacques D'Amboise and Alex Shimizu, and Chef Lidia Bastianich and her mother, who turn out to be childhood friends of Walken's, from his days in Queens.
