The Sound of Young America: TV Pilot from Jesse Thorn on Vimeo.

Jesse Thorn has a wonderful nationally syndicated public radio show called The Sound of Young America. Unfortunately it's not on local public radio, but the weekly program is available via podcast. Current thought a television version of the interview program would be a great idea, but they ended up changing formats, and the show was never green-lit. This pilot was shot in Koreatown, which was where TSOYA used to be recorded. The radio show's studio, Thorn's domicile, is now Silverlake.

Thorn's new web show is Put This On (LAist Interview.)
