Rob Sheffield - Words and Music - 2008


Rob Sheffield is a contributing editor at 'Rolling Stone' and a confessed cassette addict, so his book 'Love Is a Mix Tape: Life and Loss, One Song at a Time' is partly a chronicle of his obsession. But the memoir also reflects a trying time in Sheffield's life, where he grappled with the death of his wife and the music he once loved. So tonight, it's tales of musical woo-ing, grieving, and healing, as Rob Sheffield chats with Julianne Welby.
