David Greene on pizza, karaoke, and being dubbed 'Big Sexy' by T-Boz

Y’all heard the big news? Award-winning journalist and big time public radio guy David Greene is officially part of the KCRW family as the new host of Left, Right & Center! Naturally, we had to put him in the MBE hot seat. It’s no surprise that Greene speaks as passionately and thoughtfully about his stance on pizza toppings and karaoke as he does about global politics.

And Greene’s song selections are as delightful as he is, leading off with Devon Gilfillian's standout composition for Greene’s previous post at NPR’s Morning Edition. Greene also reflects on slinking off to work in the middle of the night to Silk Sonic, and that time TLC’s T-Boz nicknamed him “Big Sexy.” Plus, the man does a damn fine Barry Manilow impression. 

All of this, along with New Music Friday cuts from Brijean, Kokoroko, and more await, so get on in there.
