WFUV Pop Quiz: Rickie Lee Jones

by Laura Fedele

When she sat down to take the WFUV Pop Quiz with John Platt, Rickie Lee Jones talked about what supports her on the road, her wild love for "Wildfire" and her non-fiery personality. Plus, she explained her cooking method of pairing pears and her love of hang gliding.
