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.
