“Weird Al” Yankovic joins host Raina Douris

From Madonna, to Queen, to Don McLean…“Weird Al” Yankovic has parodied some of the biggest artists in the world. After nearly five decades, millions of albums sold, and multiple Grammys though, Weird Al is himself one of the biggest artists in the world. Coming up, he’ll discuss how his career has lasted as long as it has, and shares about his life and songwriting process – AND how the new biopic, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, parodies all of those things.
