Rundgren radio tonight : Jill Sobule

Jill Sobule is a singer best known for the 1995 single "I Kissed a
Girl", and "Supermodel" from the soundtrack of the 1995
film "Clueless". Her folk-inflected compositions alternate between
ironic, story-driven character studies and emotive ballads.
Autobiographical elements, including Sobule's Jewish heritage and her
adolescent battles with anorexia and depression, frequently occur in
Sobule's writing. An appreciable percentage of her work is also
dedicated to detailed accounts of both her own fictional female
creations and such troubled but celebrated women as Joey Heatherton and
Mary Kay Letourneau, whose stories are usually used to make ironic
comments about fame and celebrity.

Sobule's debut album "Things Here Are Different" was released in 1990
and was produced by pop legend Todd Rundgren.
