In this week’s edition of Radio Times in Review, we’ll listen to Marty’s 2012 conversation with Philadelphia rock and roll pioneer, CHARLIE GRACIE. The rockabilly legend recently co-authored a book about his life and career in music. We’ll also hear Marty’s conversation with novelist JUNOT DÍAZ. He joined us in 2008 to discuss his novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which was recently declared to be the best novel of the century in a study by the BBC. But first, we’ll listen to our interview with author and New York Times columnist ANAND GIRIDHARDAS.
