    Do a search at
    WFMU
    It's a free form radio station that has a great realaudio archive of all their shows. Jandek shows up every now and then. You can even read about one DJ's experience trying to find the particular rock the Jandek hides under.
    You'll want to bath after listening to too much of it.

    I managed to track down some Jandek mp3s after hearing a piece about him on NPR last year (try the file swapping services - he's out there). It's ..uh.. interesting stuff. Still, the mystery surrounding this individual is intriguing, and strangely, after a while, the music starts to grow on you.
    This particular article detailing a journalist's quest to find the man behind it all has always been my favorite piece of Jandek lore.
