...from 1997, before she became famous.

Long, long ago Art visited a high school classmate in Hollywood and met his cute new friend. The petite brunette would go on to star in NBC's Freaks n' Geeks, as well as ER, Scooby Doo, Mad Men, and now New Girl: Linda Cardellini. Art digs into the vault and brings you the thrilling interview (about 1:00 long) where she talks about her budding career and first roles.

Next, it's an epic tune from prog-jam band Iratowns called "Analogy." The live performance is from 2001 at Raleigh, North Carolina's Pour House. The guitarist/violinist of this band, Dan Campbell (link), went on to be part of country singer Buddy Jewell's band and was a world-traveling Nashville musician for over a decade.

Art's comments: "This show is one long name drop. Those who know me personally have heard this Linda Cardellini story at least 10 times. Kind of a weak move pulling out a 17-year-old tape but hey, I'm keeping the podcast beast fed! Skip to 24:50 to hear the clip.

"I was Iratowns' publicist for awhile and proudly got them write-ups in the Tampa Tribune, St. Petersburg Times and a Sarasota newspaper. To this day I think they're one of the best bands I've ran across, right up there with Led Zeppelin and everyone else. Although they broke up years ago, I still hope their music gets around. Please do listen for a great performance of one of their best songs."

Just remembered another detail, Linda Cardellini fans! She also had a small wind-up mouse in her purse she was playing with. She had an idea. When the waitress came over and asked how everything was, she said, "Well, there's a mouse in my salad," and the little wind-up mouse was in there with its wheels spinning. The waitress said, "Oh, how CUTE!" Stardom in the making.
