Nationally renowned, Chicago-based pop culture writer Lloyd Sachs joins Dave Hoekstra to talk about his new book T-Bone Burnett: A Life in Pursuit, which provides a rare in-depth critical appreciation of the man and his prolific body of work as a singer, songwriter, musician, producer and unique voice in American music.  They discuss Burnett’s reputation as a somewhat elusive figure in the music business, the challenges and rewards of writing a biography without the direct participation of the subject, and more.
