MPR 89.3 The Current: Musicheads Podcast
Musicheads for April 3, 2007
This week: The Brazilian great Caetano Veloso ventures into chunky rock guitars with his new release (his 40th, believe it or not), “Ce;” then, we finally get around to talking about one that’s been out for a while, but we wanted to make sure we didn’t pass by: Peter Bjorn and John’s “Writer’s Block;” and if that weren’t enough of a spectacular program, we find out if British mega-sensation Amy Winehouse is worth all the hype she’s been receiving. (We’re very happy to report that she is). Tony Lopez and Danny Sigelman are my guests.
