An absolutely iconic piece of art, "American Pie" is one of the greatest single songs in pop music history. And we've got the man behind it, the brilliant Don McLean, to chat with us on the show! In this episode:
- “It’s as American as Germany!”
- The Day the Music Died: The plane crash that killed 3 pop icons, and our thoughts on who their modern parallels might be
- We talk to Don Mclean about the important issues, such as beef jerky
- That awful Madonna cover and the brilliant "Weird Al" Yankovic cover
