Sat, Dec 1, 2012 -- 1:00 PM Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin

Billy Joel -- When you put two creative, well-known personalities together in conversation, it's hard to stop listening. WNYC and PRX announce the debut of "Here's the Thing with Alec Baldwin." In five programs, Alec Baldwin gives listeners unique entree into the lives of artists, policymakers and performers. Baldwin sidesteps the predictable by taking listeners inside the dressing rooms, apartments and offices of some of the leading creative personalities of our time. In this first episode, Alec sits down with Billy Joel at a piano as Joel details the decisions -- musical and personal -- that helped shape his music and his career.
