    Randy Newman is the guest on the latest episode of American Public Media's Dinner Party Download. The show, which marks its 100th episode with Newman's appearance, presents news and culture that will come in handy at your next dinner party. Hosted by Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam, Dinner Party Download includes a joke, the week’s major headlines, a little history, a cocktail recipe, music, and an artist of note. That's where Randy comes in.

    You can hear what he has to say in this week's episode, available on public radio stations across the country this weekend, including 89.3 FM KPCC in Southern California, streaming at kpcc.org, at 9:50 AM Saturday morning before Car Talk. You can also listen online and download the podcast starting Saturday at 5 PM PST at dinnerpartydownload.com.

    Randy Newman's latest album, Songbook Vol. 2, features new solo piano and vocal takes on 16 of his celebrated songs, surveying 40 years of recordings. To pick up a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    "As a gift to us and the world at large, Newman has recorded his sardonic, hilarious, and often moving repertoire in the studio, solo at the keys," says the Christian Science Monitor in its review. "The Randy Newman Songbook Vol. 2, like Vol. 1, is the next best thing to seeing this unique artist and American treasure live. And, by all means, try to do that soon."
