Before 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, WYMS was a jazz station. That history lives on in our jazz collection in our studios in Walker's Point in the form of a record wall. To celebrate some of that history, we decided to ask some of the bands that stop by for a session to go through the collection and pick out some favorites.  

In this first edition of "Why Did You Pick That," we ask The New Pornographers band members Kathryn Calder and John Collins to select a record from our jazz wall and tell a little story on why they picked that record.

Evan Paydon: Beyond Bass and Time.

Evan Paydon is a man on the low end of the spectrum. And while that may sound like an insult, I actually say it with the utmost respect and awe. You see, all life manifests itself from the deep. Our minds function using beta waves @ 13-30 Hz during our waking life. And the calmer one gets, the lower our brain waves go. Deep meditation induces theta waves @ 4-8 Hz. And deep, dreamless, sleep induces delta waves @ 1-3 Hz. Evan is most famously known as the bass player for The Delta Routine.

5 O'Clock Shadow 11-11-14: "Stay"

Click to enlarge

So I listened to this song after what felt like 15 years. Here's the revelation: It's an R&B Emo anthem. Who'd have thought? So it's strange that Shakespeare's Sister was born out of Siobahn Fahey's frustration with Bananarama, which I get because "Do I really, really HAVE to play 'Cruel Summer' AGAIN?"
