Music writer Carl Wilson doesn't like Celine Dion's music so why would he write a book about her 1999 hit album, "Let's Talk About Love"? Wilson shares his story of trying to get in touch with his inner Celine Dion fan. And what the experience taught him about musical taste. Also, we'll explore the music of the Viking of 6th Avenue...Moondog.
Carl Wilson is a writer and editor at Canada's national newspaper "The Globe and Mail," and the author of "Let's Talk about Love: A Journey to the End of Taste." The book examines the phenomenon of Celine Dion, the best-selling female recording artist in the world.
Thomas Louis Hardin is an internationally known and respected composer known for decades to New Yorkers as an eccentric street performer who dressed as a Viking and called himself "Moondog." Robert Scotto wrote his biography.
