Radio (Not Radio)

Sort of like Radio or Not! Right?

Well, tonight, I'm thrilled to welcome Don Was, who came to fame as half of Was (Not Was) before becoming known as one of the best music producers working today!

Although I've always been a fan, I've never had the opportunity to interview Don. But over the past week, I've seen this video everywhere. Don brought a bunch of people into a studio -- Jon Bon Jovi and Ritchie Sambora, along with Iranian super star Andy Madadian -- and they recorded this rendition of the Ben E. King classic "Stand By Me".

Here's the video, along with Don Was' intro, explaining what it's all about.

Don will join me at the beginning of the second hour -- 12 midnight ET/9pm PT.

In our first hour, in honor of the 4th of July coming up this weekend, we'll take a fun albeit irreverent look back at our founding fathers and mothers with comedienne Amy Simon.

And, of course, we'll deal with the news of the day too.... I hope you'll join in the fun!
