Show: ‘The Sound of Young America’.
‘Weird’ Al Yankovic is the undisputed king of parody music and the all-time bestselling accordionist. His new children’s book is ‘When I Grow Up’. His new album is due this summer.
The musician and parodist Weird Al was on The Sound of Young America earlier this year, but the details of his new album were still under wraps. It was so top-secret, he couldn’t even allude to it. We agreed to do the interview if we could do a follow up when Alpocalypse was released.
The caveat from their side — that we come over to Al’s house to record! So this time, we’re at Al’s to talk about the timing of parodies, getting artists’ permission (including Lady Gaga), and where he stores all those Hawaiian shirts.
"Ian MacKaye is a punk rock legend. His bands have included Minor Threat, Fugazi and most recently The Evens. He joined us live on stage in Washington DC." - via Sound Of Young America
