Tony V. Baughman (journalist, DJ, comedian and actor) is today's featured guest.
Topics: why most kids today don't even own a radio, and yet how it is that many of them love The Beatles; the value of the annual Bonnaroo Music Festival and why some consider it the modern day equivalent of Woodstock; how theater can be considered performance therapy; the lure of acting as a career as opposed to the safety of not striving for its lofty heights; and references to the Spencer Tracy movie Inherit the Wind, and the Meryl Streep movie Doubt.
