Los Angeles band Fishbone emerged in the 1980s with a powerful mix of punk and funk at a time when music was dominated by rigid genres. We talk with founding members of Fishbone and the directors of the new documentary "Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone," about breaking the barriers between black and white music and why the band didn't become the superstars that many musicians and critics expected them to be.

Host: Scott Shafer


  • Angelo Moore, saxophonist and vocalist for Fishbone
  • Norwood Fisher, bassist and back-up vocalist for Fishbone
  • Dre Gipson, keyboardist, guitarist and back-up vocalist for Fishbone
  • Chris Metzler, co-director of "Everyday Sunshine"
  • Lev Anderson, co-director of "Everyday Sunshine"
