Show for Sept 23, 2012. Jazz & Soul Singer-Songwriter Gregory Porter.
Do I have to write a description of this interview? Can I simply say, “just listen”? Since his debut album came out in 2010, Gregory Porter has quickly won a passionate following around the world.

So just listen, and don’t miss the end.
Yes, I did ask Gregory Porter about the hat.
