The music of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings is something we know and love here at FUV, but Sharon's story is newly told in the documentary "Miss Sharon Jones!."

Ahead of its opening on July 29, Sharon took the time to visit FUV to talk about the film and fill us in on how she's doing, but she also came with some music and stories to share.
