A bittersweet story about redundancy, an unwanted dog and the Japanese art of repair.

A 700-Foot Mountain of Whipped Cream
by Clive Desmond for The Organist from KCRW and McSweeney's, with executive producers Andrew Leland and Ross Simonini.
From in utero to the studio, producer Clive Desmond provides a tour of the golden age of radio ads, featuring Frank Zappa, Ken Nordine, Linda Ronstadt, and Randy Newman. Here, each jingle becomes a Proustian madeleine.
