Dr. Gillian Turnbull, professor and author of Sonic Booms: Making Music in an Oil Town, returns to the NSTS studios this week with a whole new batch of tunes to talk about. It's always fun to host Gillian - she's a really smart woman who really feels music. 

Listen in as the good doctor discusses Kathleen Edwards' gift, the life of a cowboy, her love of yodelling, a topless Neko Case, who she wants to be when she grows up, and the time she made Jack White cry. And at one point, Gillian actually turns the line of questioning on me and things get kinda deep for a few moments. Fantastic conversation.    

Turnbull's playlist:

Cowboy Junkies - Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning (live)

Kathleen Edwards - Maria

k.d. lang - Big Boned Gal

Suzy Bogguss - Night Rider's Lament

Maggie Bjorklund - Insekt

Calexico - Maybe on Monday

Neko Case - Sleep All Summer

Neko Case - Ragtime
