Today HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence is joined by Rick Springfield. Back with a new album, The Snake King, he’s in town Saturday through Monday at the Blue Note. This conversation goes back to Rick's childhood and covers important early influences, including seeing The Beatles live, as well as formative chapters in his life, like entertaining troops during the 1960's Vietnam conflict, his early 1970's Saturday morning cartoon series, and the development of his critically acclaimed Working Class Dog, which featured his massive hit "Jessie's Girl". Rick's years on General Hospital, appearances on TV shows like Wonder Woman, The Hardy Boys and The Six Million Dollar Man are also covered.
