Béla Fleck

Today we are featuring a conversation with the world?s preeminent banjo player, Béla Fleck. Over the course of his four-decade career, Béla has won numerous Grammys in a variety of surprising genres including Jazz, Latin, Pop, and Classical. Last year, his latest release, My Bluegrass Heart, scored the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album.

In addition to Béla?s innovative style and expert technique, he is also an advocate for keeping the banjo?s rich historical tradition alive. In 2008, Béla made a pilgrimage to Africa to trace the origins of the banjo in the documentary Throw Down Your Heart.

On today?s episode Bruce Headlam talks to Béla Fleck about growing up in New York City where he first fell in love with the banjo while watching the Beverly Hillbillies. Béla also talks about how jazz giants like Chick Corea and Charlie Parker influenced his highly technical style. And, Béla explains why he believes the banjo is far superior to the guitar.

Nilüfer Yanya

Nilüfer Yanya is a 27-year-old singer/songwriter from West London. After several years of hitting small stages with her guitar, Nilüfer broke through in 2016 with a series of soulful, indie-pop EPs and singles. Justin Richmond spoke with Nilüfer in April, just after her performance at Coachella, about the release of her second album, PAINLESS. The album?s tracks are laden with electronic drums and raucous guitar. They play like a diary entry, wrenched with heartbreak, loss, and hope.

On today?s episode Nilüfer talks about the collaborative songwriting process she has with her producer, Will Archer and friend, saxophonist, Jazzi Bobbi. She also recalls how she wrote her first songs as a 10-year-old, and how she always dreamed of being a guitarist in a band, rather than a solo act.

Neneh Cherry

Swedish-born singer Neneh Cherry?s four-decade-long career has ricocheted between a number of genres including hip-hop, jazz, and trip-hop. Her first single in 1988, ?Buffalo Stance,? cemented her standing as a no-nonsense Black feminist voice in contemporary urban music. This year Neneh released her sixth album, ?The Versions.? It?s a collection of cover songs of some of Cherry?s biggest hits, and is performed exclusively by female artists including Robyn, Sia, and Neneh?s daughter Tyson.

On today?s episode Bruce Headlam talks to Neneh Cherry about her bohemian upbringing in Sweden, New York and London with stepdad Don Cherry, the famous jazz trumpet player. Neneh also recalls how she first met The Slits, the legendary all-girl punk group. And why despite scoring her first big hit with a cheeky rap verse, she never considered herself a real MC.

Lyle Lovett

Today on the show, we're welcoming Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, Lyle Lovett. Lovett follows in the footsteps of Texas troubadours like Guy Clark, Walter Hyatt, and Townes Van Zandt.

In 1986, Lovett helped lay the foundation for the alternative country and Americana movements with his debut, self-titled album. Since then, he has continued to light up country music with a rich blend of country, big band, blues, folk, and jazz. All of those sounds are on display in 12th of June?his first new album in a decade.

On today?s episode Lovett speaks to Bruce Headlam about his new album, a project rooted in home and family, which makes sense considering at 64 years-old, he's a new dad to twins. Lovett also shares stories of his early days playing gigs around Texas A&M.

The Doors: Robby Krieger and John Densmore

Today we have a fun follow-up to last week?s episode with Johnny Echols from the band Love. This week we?ll hear Rick interview the last two living members of The Doors?guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore?about coming up in the LA rock scene alongside the band Love, who The Doors idolized and then later eclipsed.

The Doors formed in 1965 and burned white-hot, releasing six albums in five years, until the death of their larger than life lead singer, Jim Morrison. In their brief time as a band, The Doors quickly became one of the biggest acts of the late 60s. Their anti flower-power appeal was accentuated by Jim Morrison?s heavy, brooding lyrics, and keyboardist Ray Manzarek?s frenzied organ licks.

On today?s episode Rick Rubin talks to Robby Krieger and John Densmore about their tumultuous history with Jim Morrison?who John refers to as a ?Kamikaze drunk.? Both Robbie and John recall LSD-fueled stories from their early gigs with The Doors. And the role Acapulco Gold played in Jim Morrison?s songwriting process.

Danny Brown and Johnny Echols on Love's Forever Changes

Today we?re closing out Black Music Month by celebrating one of Rick Rubin?s favorite albums of all time?Forever Changes by the band Love. Formed in 1965, Love was a groundbreaking, interracial L.A. group. While their name isn?t usually mentioned alongside historic psychedelic bands like The Byrds or The Grateful Dead, Love?s influence is vast. Their charismatic, fashion-forward black frontman, Arthur Lee, inspired Jimi Hendrix?s look, and in the mid-60s Love was one of the hottest bands in Hollywood.

In 1967 Love recorded their third album, Forever Changes. It was the last album for the original core group with guitarist Johnny Echols and co-writer Brian McClean. The album ushered in an entirely new sound for the band, combining Baroque sounding strings with horns and folky instrumentation with poetic lyrics.

On today?s episode we?ll hear some of Rick Rubin?s conversation with Detroit rapper Danny Brown, who like Rick, places Love?s album Forever Changes at the very top of his greatest albums of all time list. Then, we?ll hear Rick in conversation with Love?s lead guitarist Johnny Echols about the intense turmoil surrounding the recording of Forever Changes. Echols?who grew up straddling both Black LA and the psychedelic strip?explains how Love was responsible for getting The Doors their record deal, only to be quickly overshadowed by The Doors mainstream success. Echols also recalls first meeting the Beatles when they were an opening act for Little Richard.

Sonny Rollins

Today we?re continuing our celebration of Black Music Month with the incredible jazz legend, Sonny Rollins. Rollins is an American tenor saxophonist and composer who is widely regarded as one of the most influential jazz musicians of all time. Sadly, now at 91 years-old, Rollins no longer plays as a result of pulmonary fibrosis. Fortunately for us though, he's able to look back over an eight-decade career that started at the beginnings of Bebop, and included playing with the Rolling Stones, and performing on stages all over the world.

On today?s episode, Justin Richmond talks to Sonny Rollins about one of his first big gigs in 1949 playing alongside other jazz icons like Bud Powell and Fats Navarro. He also explains why he no longer actively listens to music, and for the first time ever, Rollins talks about how Charlie ?Bird? Parker is the reason he kicked drugs.

Adrian Quesada

Today on the show, we’re talking to Grammy award-winning musician, Adrian Quesada who's best known as one-half of the Black Pumas. During the pandemic Adrian started working on a solo project inspired by his longtime love of psychedelic music and Latin American love songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s.

On today’s episode, Adrian and a few of the singers featured on the album—iLe, Angelica Garcia and Tita—talk about how the new album came together, their collaborative process, and how boleros and baladas fit into Latin music today.

Tom Jones

Today we’ll hear Rick Rubin talk to one of his all-time favorite vocalists, Tom Jones. With his soulful baritone and unique interpretation of the American R&B and gospel, Jones became a mainstay at hip venues in London, New York and Las Vegas with now-timeless hits like “It’s Not Unusual,” and “Green Green Grass Of Home.”

On today’s episode, Tom Jones shares stories with Rick from his remarkable career, including the first time he met Elvis on a movie set in Hollywood—and the night he turned down an invitation to join Little Richard on stage out of fear he’d be deported. Tom also talks about why he thought Burt Bacharach’s lyrics to “What’s New Pussycat” were a joke the first time he heard them.

Chad Smith

Today we have the final interview in our month-long series with the Red Hot Chili Peppers in celebration of their new album, Unlimited Love, produced by Rick Rubin. There?s only one Chili Pepper left, Mr. ?I eat-drums-for-breakfast? himself, Chad Smith.

Chad has always been a bit of an outlier in the band, he?s the only member who isn?t from L.A. He?s from the suburbs of Detroit and he was reared more on classic rock than punk like the rest of the band. But Chad is an integral member of the Peppers. His hard hitting style is the band?s foundation. And as we?ll hear him tell Rick, Chad fell in love with the Chili Peppers the day he auditioned for them close to 35 years ago.

On today?s episode Chad and Rick talk about the lost demo sessions the Chili Peppers recorded nearly a year before they made Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Chad also talks about how ?Californication? started out as what he calls ?a bad reggae song.? And he remembers the time he and Flea got chased?nearly naked?by cops in Green Bay.

Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott is one of popular music's greatest innovators. This year is the 25th anniversary of Missy?s classic debut album, Supa Dupa Fly. When that album dropped, Missy?s unconventional rhyme schemes paired with her childhood friend Timbaland?s futuristic production set a precedent for what was creatively possible in hip-hop. And throughout her career, Missy?s maintained that same level of playful creativity.

This year Missy broke records when she was recognized as having more platinum albums than any other female rapper. She?s also the first female MC to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame for songs she's written for Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Destiny?s Child and Aaliyah?s biggest hits: ?One In A Million,? and ?If Your Girl Only Knew.?

Today Rick Rubin talks to Missy Elliott about her wide-reaching influence and creative process. She explains what it was like writing for Aaliyah, who was one of the first artists to embrace Missy and Timbaland?s unique style. She also talks about why she and Timbaland made a pact not to listen to any other music while recording her debut album.

Patti Smith

Today we have the one and only Patti Smith on the show. Patti is the prototypical downtown, New York City artist. Her 1975 debut album Horses is credited as one of the masterpieces of its time. It also cemented her as one of rock n roll's great lyricists. But her writing extends far beyond music. Her 2010 memoir, Just Kids, won the National Book Award for its brilliant portrayal of the ?70s bohemian art scene in New York, and Patti?s experience living in the Chelsea Hotel with the famed photographer, Robert Mapplethorpe. Today Patti publishes near-daily offerings of poems, songs and serialized fiction on her Substack newsletter. It?s a journal of sorts that she started during the solitary days of the pandemic. 

On today?s episode, Malcolm Gladwell talks to Patti Smith about her writing in the studio Jimi Hendrix built, Electric Lady. It was there, she tells Malcolm, that she met Hendrix in 1970?just weeks before he passed away. Patti also talks about hanging out with and writing lyrics for Janis Joplin, and she recalls the fun she had during a failed attempt to cover Adele in concert.

Bonnie Raitt

Bonnie Raitt is many things?a Rock ?n Roll Hall-of-Famer, an incredible blues guitarist, an underrated songwriter, and a fierce advocate for social justice. Bonnie was offered her first record deal as a college student in 1971 after a reporter saw her play an early gig in NYC, but it took almost two decades before she peaked commercially with her tenth album, Nick Of Time. Throughout her long career Bonnie has helped preserve American blues music by recording songs from little-known but classic songwriters.

On today?s episode Bruce Headlam talks to Bonnie Raitt about her meticulous song-selection process and the inspiration behind the tunes she wrote for her new album, Just Like That. Bonnie also talks about a somewhat awkward dinner she had with Prince. And how her slide guitar technique will forever be tied to giving her brother the bird.

On today?s episode Broken Record producer Leah Rose talks to Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally of Beach House about the inner-workings of their unique creative partnership. They also talk about how the warmth of Bob Marley?s music has indirectly inspired the band, and they explain why sometimes you have to just get over yourself for the sake of show business.

Judy Collins

To kick off our month long celebration of Women's History Month, today we are featuring an interview with the great Judy Collins. At 82 years-old, Collins is in the midst of a creative shift. She first made a name for herself in the 60?s folk revival covering songs by artists like Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan. But this year, for the first time in her career, she?s released an album written entirely by herself. The album?s called Spellbound. And the music feels right at home with some of the best in her catalog.

On today's episode she tells tells Bruce Headlam about her recent burst of activity, which includes six albums in the last six years. They also talk about her working relationship with Leonard Cohen, and how she actually lived the rugged life that peers like Dylan could only sing about.

Robert Plant

Robert Plant is arguably the most iconic rock vocalist of all time. As the frontman for Led Zeppelin, his dynamic, soaring vocal style was the perfect lead for the band?s unparalleled musicianship. After Zeppelin broke up in 1980 following the death of drummer John ?Bonzo? Bonham, Plant set out on his own and recorded songs that drew inspiration from North African music, psych rock, and the Blues. 

In 2007 Plant began collaborating with Alison Krauss, the famed bluegrass singer and fiddle player. Under the guidance of producer and Broken Record alum, T Bone Burnett, their first album, Raising Sand, sold over a million copies in the US and won five Grammys, including Album of the Year. 

On today?s episode, Rick Rubin talks to Robert Plant about recording his latest release with Krauss, Can?t Let Go. Plant also talks about how a trip to the Sahara in the early ?70s with Jimmy Paige inspired them to write ?Kashmir.? And he remembers the first time he met John Bonham as a teenager and Bonham declared himself, ?the best drummer in the world.?

Sam Sanders on Janet Jackson's Legacy

Today we're sharing an episode from our friend Sam Sanders over at NPR?s It's Been a Minute podcast. This year marks the 35th anniversary of Janet Jackson's classic album, Control. That album was her first real commercial hit and, looking back, helped redefine all of pop music. It also helped establish two star producers in Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. In the late 80s and 90s, Janet was one of the biggest stars of our time?right up there with her brother Michael and Madonna. And yet, Jackson isn't always given her due.

In this episode, host Sam Sanders explores why that is, how she made the album Control, and the incident that lasted all but a second, that changed the course of her career.
