  • Junot Diaz, The Golden Record, And Dr. John

    Today on Soundcheck, we revisit a few of our favorite segments from 2012. 

    First, Pulitzer Prize-winning  writer Junot Diaz talks about his latest collection, This Is How You Lose Her. It's about a young man named Yunior, who was born in the Dominican Republic and grows up in New Jersey -- much like the author himself. Diaz tells us about the music that moves him, and shares a personal "Pick Three."

    Then, we hear from the woman who produced the famed "Golden Record," a compilation affixed to the twin spacecrafts NASA launched in 1977 to explore the furthest reaches of the solar system.

    And, New Orleans music iconoclast Dr. John discusses Locked Down, his 2012 album produced by The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach.
