A 35-year veteran of the music industry, British rocker Graham Parker recently took his first stab at penning music for television. When the two TV theme songs he submitted were rejected by the shows' creators, Parker decided he would make their loss his own gain. Thus was born Imaginary Television, Parker's new album of theme songs for nonexistent TV shows, complete with liner notes that outline the plots and characters. He joins us today to share selections from it.
