MTV executive Bill Flanagan helped usher music into the video age and transform VH1 from MTV´s neglected stepchild into a hip pop culture destination. Along the way he created the series Storytellers and helped bring in Behind the Music. He just published his third novel, Evening´s Empire, set in the venues Flanagan knows best: the private jets, hedonistic afterparties, and ginormous mansions of the rock ´n´ roll glitterati. Next, last year classical musician Meredeth Rouse signed up for the U.S. Army Band. Alongside soldiers nearly half her age, she had to get comfortable with rifles, hand grenades, and chemical warfare. In the Army, even an oboist has to get through boot camp. Then,Carl Jung´s secret Red Book was recently displayed to the public for the first time. Now in New York, celebrities like filmmaker Charlie Kaufman and comedian Sarah Silverman are using the book to explore their psyches on stage in the Red Book Dialogues. Finally, Malaysian singer-songwriter Zee Avi just released her debut album. Perhaps the only Borneo-born ukulele player to get a major record deal through YouTube, Zee Avi talks with Kurt about her album and performs live in the studio. [Broadcast Date: January 23, 2010] 1.
