Interview (in the mail) with Jonathan Richman


SF Weekly got Jonathan Richman to agree to answer some questions—by way of snail mail.

Richman, who is gearing up for a show this Sunday at The Make-Out Room, shares his thoughts on the Internet, air-conditioning, and being called the “Grandfather of Punk.”

“I’m glad our old band could have influenced other musicians — given them a ‘way,’ so to speak.”
