Tonight is a special live hour on KUOW. We'll talk with "Weird Al" Yankovic about parody music, then singer–songwriter Amy Grant joins us to reflect on her long career and the modern day Christian pop music scene. Then we turn to you! What music do you absolutely love but you're too embarrassed to admit it? What music on your iPod are you shy about sharing? Tell us why you love it, what memories it conjures and why you keep it to yourself. Radio is anonymous. This is your chance to confess you hidden musical loves. 1.800.289.KUOW (5869).
