Over the years, Wilco has evolved into one of the great American bands, and that evolution has been a thing of beauty in itself. This radio playlist shuffles songs from throughout their career, drawing from full concerts in 1996, 1997, and 1999; a Daytrotter session recorded at their Chicago loft in 2011; and a Jay Bennett Daytrotter session recorded in 2007. There are also two fantastic 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' covers here: The Punch Brothers give "Poor Places" a bluegrass treatment, and JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound funk up "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" (dedicated to Brooks' favorite Chicago soul singer, Jeff Tweedy). Enjoy!
