I'm trying to remember the name of a female singer-songwriter who was interviewed on NPR recently (or at least I heard part of the interview a few weeks ago). She played a simple folk guitar style and her Quaker (pretty sure, definitely a philosophical Christian minority sect) faith was part of her writing inspiration. [more inside]
I'm looking for an album/artist. It came out about 5 to 8 years ago and was popular with the NPR-crowd (probably a "first listen"). It was a woman singer and was pretty angsty. I remember one song that had something to do with a woman in a bathtub or in the bathroom; maybe the singer referred to has her wife. Very vague. Too vague for my searching skills.
Name that tune? Background intro music for This American Life, the episode "Our Friend David." Slow acoustic guitar chords are the only key feature I can identify. [more inside]

This American Life has at least a dozen instrumentals that they use over and over as background music. The Happy Flute Song, the Things Are Kind of Tense Song, and so on. I've really grown to like many of them, but I cannot identify any of them. Can TAL fans identify any of the standard music beds?
I'm searching for a radio program that aired on NPR about nine months ago. Clues are inside. [more inside]
RadioFilter: A friend told me she heard a segment on country music's popularity in Ethiopia on WNYC (820 AM, public radio in New York) this morning. Despite searching the websites of every show they aired, I cannot find audio or any mention of the segment. Did anyone else catch this, and if so, can you help me find it?
I would like help with the identify of a song I heard on NPR a few years ago. It was something of a "metasong" with lyrics stating the part of the song currently being sung. Such as "this is the bridge" and "Here comes the chorus". I would like to hear this song again.
