The remarkable story of Rodriguez is now widely known thanks to the film - Searching For Sugarman. When he came to FUV, guitar in hand, it was an opportunity for us to hear the story first hand long before the Oscar buzz led to an Academy Award win for best Documentary. Rodriquez is a poet, an activist, and an artist. The success he is enjoying now -including a string of sold out shows - is a long time coming but well deserved.
We'll air this session tonight @ 9 on WFUV but you can listen to it anytime by dipping into the Vault.
