Earphones Award Winner

It’s a fine night for the garbage truck. It makes its rounds, collecting curbside trash throughout the city and delivering it to the garbage scow. Heard this before? Not the way Kate and Jim McMullan have created it and Andy Richter presents it. For the young trash truck aficionado, this is the definitive recording. As the anatomy of the truck is exposed and its mechanisms explained, probable contents are revealed and cheered. The work of every sanitation department is championed. With a superb musical accompaniment, Andy Richter brings the McMullans’ visual artistry and story to life. Each word has the inflection and pacing that it suggests. Richter’s deep and gravelly voice sounds just like the voice of a proud, no-nonsense garbage truck. Fun from first pickup to last! A.R.
