Experience the unstoppable energy of hits like "Good Vibrations," "Uptown Girl" and "Walk Like a Man" paired with swoon-worthy renditions of "Maybe I'm Amazed" and Enrico Caruso's "Una Furtiva." Spector's reverent interpretations illustrate his closeness to the material and his deep respect for these influential artists: Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, The Beach Boys, and of course, Frankie Valli.

Rickie Lee Jones (Episode #102H)

KQED Plus: Sun, Jun 9, 2019 -- 11:00 PM

Two-time Grammy-winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. Her latest release, The Other Side of Desire, explores a new chapter in her life--her first album of new original material in ten years. In The Kate, Rickie Lee's performance provides a window into the meteoric rise and fade of the early days and the soul-stirring place her song writing emanates from now. Charming the audience with fan favorites like "Chuck E's In Love" and the playful new tune penned for her daughter, "Jimmy Choos," to the haunting piano-driven ballad "Infinity," Rickie Lee Jones shares with audiences her signature bravado.
