Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Rosanne Cash is the daughter of country music legend Johnny Cash, but she's forged her own very successful career in music. In addition to fourteen albums and eleven number one singles, she's written essays and fiction. She talks with Steve Paulson about her latest literary effort, a memoir called Composed.

Next, Diederick Van Eck grew up in the shadow of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and has always been fascinated by the colors and textures of van Gogh's paintings. Now he's created a CD called Van Gogh by Van Eck: A Musical Journey in the Heart and Sould of Vincent Van Gogh. He tells Jim Fleming about his inspirations.

Then, Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale were art students in the 1970s when they formed a different kind of rock band called "Devo," short for "de-evolution." Now this hugely successful band of the 70s and 80s is back with a new album. To the Best of Our Knowledge producer Doug Gordon talked with Devo co-founder Gerald Casale about the return of Devo.

And finally, music journalist Rob Sheffield has a new book out remembering his fascination with Duran Duran. He tells Anne Strainchamps about Talking to Girls About Duran Duran: One Young Man's Quest for True Love and a Cooler Haircut. [Broadcast Date: November 19, 2010]
