Being knighted a Commander of the British Empire would probably make you a "well-respected man about town," but even before knighthood, Ray Davies of The Kinks had been a well-respected man of music for more than four decades.

Recently, the Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer stopped by Studio A to talk to me about his new album, The Kinks Choral Collection, which features a sixty-odd piece chorus tackling a portion of The Kinks’ prolific singles catalog.
