Superchunk’s Wurster Is NBC/CNN Star

 

Just don’t go on the
Glenn Beck show, bro…

BLURT hero and all-around bon-vivant Jon Wurster, of
Superchunk/Mountain Goats/Scharpling & Wurster fame, was on a NY-to-NC flight the
other day that was fraught with what media pundits call “an incident.”
Specifically, that “incident” in which the runway-stranded airplane descended
into turmoil (so to speak) after an agitated flight attendant got all
in-your-face
with equally-agitated passengers.

 

Wurster tweeted about his experience as a passenger on the
flight, and soon enough, the media – including CNN (see the CNN story ) and the Today show – came a-calling. The video below (via Triangle Music) is worth a million
bucks in promotional swag, of course; if the right people spot it, perhaps
BLURT’s longtime desire to see Wurster with his own cable show will finally be
realized.
