As the author of the acclaimed, darkly satirical novel Fight Club, among a dozen others, he knows how to push people’s buttons.
So when we invited him to play Guest DJ and saw his picks included such hoary 70s epics as Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street,” Gordon Lightfoot’s “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”, & the hoariest of all, Don McLean’s deathless …
