As the principal songwriter and singer for the Swedish group Peter, Bjorn and John, Peter Morén has been very successful at creating smart, tuneful songs with international appeal. Peter recently found that he was writing songs that led to a solo side project, for which the songs may be even smarter and more tuneful. Peter joins host David Garland to talk about his music, and to play some of the thoughtful, beautifully crafted songs from his new solo album “The Last Tycoon.”

Love your show. Whenever I hear people talk about the sad state of affairs in music, I think of your show. Always different...always interesting.

Keep up the good work.
