The 1990 documentary "Paris is Burning" chronicled the golden age of drag balls in New York City - and the birth of the dance style known as “voguing." Today, Soundcheck strikes a pose… and looks back at the history of the ballroom scene and its music with the director of the award-winning film. Plus: As we continue to solicit "Ring" cycle haiku, Bowery Poetry Club founder Bob Holman joins us to talk about the history of the 17-syllable poetry form.
