Extended sections featuring The Kinks and their album Arthur (including demos), Bob Dylan, songwriter/producer Jeff Barry and new releases from Prince and Harry Nilsson. 

Also new releases from Liz Phair, Aimee Mann and Jenny Lewis.

Btw, there was a technical problem playing a newly released Harry Nilsson song at the start of the show. However, the full song appears later on… and sounds great!!
