Airs Friday, March 31, 2017, at 11 p.m. It's not every day that artists who are iconic figures in American popular music sit down with public radio producers to lay out the complete trajectory of their life's work. But that's exactly what Bubba (Merald) Knight, founding member of Gladys Knight and the Pips and older brother to Gladys has done, with Bubba Knight's Story: Through the Eyes of a Pip. This production was conceived by KCEP-FM in partnership with the AAPRC, and co-produced by Craig Knight and Jim Luce.

Imagine a monkey watching a television, switching from one station to another and trying to make sense of what he’s seeing. That’s the premise behind Roger Waters’ concept album amused to death. Waters draws from the news, history and his personal life to find understanding and meaning in a chaotic world.
