NIGHT TIME IN THE BIG CITY
This is pretty cool. We're big fans of the XM show, Theme Time Radio, the weekly showcase of obscure music with gravelly between-song patter by host Bob Dylan.
We're also big fans of cartoonist Jaime Hernandez, famous for creating many fantastic comics including the Love and Rockets series with brother Gilbert.
So check this out.
Hernandez has created a great poster for the radio show incorporating elements of the film noir-ish voice-over intro, read by actress Ellen Barkin. What a poster. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Somebody named "Ukelele Elvis" linked the poster to the voice-over in a cool little clip below. Be sure to click the "full screen" option. Thanks, Uke.
