The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs

Shortwave with Grant-Lee Phillips #4October 1, 2012

It’s been 16 years since she’s released a solo album, Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles sits down to chat on this week’s Shortwave. Susanna shares her writing process, explains how Keith Richard’s audiobook inspired her throughout the making of the record, and tells us how Prince helped The Bangles break out onto the charts. Susanna also talks about writing with Mark Linkous in an old abandoned schoolyard, how The Bangles became an alumni of Gilmore Girls, and singing backup on the Talking Heads’ “Wild Wild Life.” Plus, we’re treated to some live songs from Susanna’s latest album “Someday.”
