Brendan Jay Sullivan and Lady Gaga

All this week on Soundcheck, we'll be streaming each show live at 2 p.m. ET. 

In this episode: In 2006, DJ and writer Brendan Jay Sullivan met a go-go dancer and aspiring musician named Stefani Germanotta. Sullivan tells the story of their friendship and her transformation into pop megastar Lady Gaga in his new book Rivington Was Ours: Lady Gaga, The Lower East Side And The Prime Of Our Lives.

Then, as the meth trade-driven crime drama Breaking Bad marches its way to the series' finale, we talk with Dave Porter, the composer of the show's haunting original score.

And folk-pop singer Brett Dennen performs songs from his upcoming release, Smoke And Mirrors, in the Soundcheck studio.
