Slate pop critic Jack Hamilton joins me to discuss Stevie Wonder’s sometimes overlooked classic album ‘Innervisions’, how it showcases Stevie’s political side, how he balanced sophisticated artistry with massive commercial success, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers version of 'Higher Ground’ and the remarkable dynamic Stevie has with his live audiences and what we might expect from Stevie in the age of President Trump.
Buy Jack’s excellent book 'Just Around Midnight: Rock'n'Roll and the Racial Imagination’ if you care at all about pop music, pop culture or knowing things.
