It is Day 2 of Elvis Costello week! In today’s episode, Jim and Patrick go all of the way back to 1978 to discuss his fantastic second album “This Year’s Model;” his first album which introduces the band ‘The Attractions.’ Mike Snider joins the gang again in this episode, making his fourth appearance with the boys.

FUN FACT: While shooting pictures for the album art, Elvis Costello asked photographer Chris Gabrin to play ‘Hotel California’ by the Eagles (an album Costello was not particularly fond of). According to Gabrin, Costello wanted to look “really pissed off and angry in the shots!”
