It was the best of times for Pattie Boyd. Her modeling career was booming and the sixties were exploding on the London scene. One day she got a call - she'd been cast in a Beatles film. The rest is history. We'll meet the woman who inspired three of the most famous rock songs of all time, from George Harrison's "Something" to Eric Clapton's "Layla." Also, one writer's homage to a hero in letters: Kurt Vonnegut.
Steve Almond tells Steve Paulson how his evolution as a writer began with a teenage obsession with Kurt Vonnegut. Though he hid that passion for years, he revealed it recently in his book "Not That You Asked."
Pianist Christopher O'Riley agrees with Duke Ellington that there are only two kinds of music - good and bad. He has a thriving career playing both classical music and his own arrangements of Elliot Smith and Radiohead.
