This time of year back in 2017, Electric Lady Studios in the West Village was full of WFUV Members and music fans feeling pretty lucky to be in the same, small room with American songwriting treasure Randy Newman.

Newman was there to talk with me about his first collection of new songs in nine years, Dark Matter, and in fact we started the show by playing back the album's 8-minute opening track, "The Great Debate." With his trademark humor, love of history and gift for melody, Randy also performed some new and classic songs in this very entertaining session, and Alisa Ali will give you another chance to hear it all as today's "Marquee Noon."

So tune in at noon today on FUV, or listen and watch video anytime in the FUV Live Vault.
