My 1st guest was the Waitresses but I couldn't find any mention of it on their website. 2nd guess was Martha and the Muffins but no mention on their website either.

The song in the commercial where the guy is waiting for the phone call from the girl is "Hanging on the Telephone" vocals by Cat Power. It was originally by Nerves, then Blondie, here covered by Cat Power
