Tom Waits Atlanta show on NPR.org

Tom Waits brought his 'Glitter and Doom' Tour to Atlanta on July 5, and now we all have a second chance to hear the show. It's being hosted online at NPR.org. What NPR has to say about the show:

For his Atlanta stop, recorded at the city's historic Fox Theater on July 5, Waits delivered a stunning and epic two-and-a-half-hour performance, including songs he says he's never attempted outside of the studio before. Backing Waits is a five-piece group featuring Seth Ford-Young (upright bass), Patrick Warren (keyboards), Omar Torrez (guitars), Vincent Henry (woodwinds), and Casey Waits (drums and percussion). "They play with racecar precision and they are all true conjurers," Waits says. "They are all multi-instrumentalists and they polka like real men."

Thanks, Chaz. The podcast download link wasn't working this morning, as far as I could tell. Much appreciated!

Not sure I understand what you're asking. You can download the podcast, but you have to stream via the NPR player.

I can subscribe to the NPR podcast (via itunes) but it doesn't let me download anything - there is no MP3 file anywhere on my computer that I can find. How do you find the URL to the actual MP3 file. "get info" on the podccast doesn't do it.

Your iTunes should be downloading those for you as mp3 files. Otherwise there wouldn't be anything for it to play. They're probably in a "Podcasts" directory where you have your iTunes library.
