Peter Gabriel's most recent album is 'And I'll Scratch Yours.'

In this episode: Before Peter Gabriel is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Jon Pareles, the veteran New York Times pop music critic looks back at his groundbreaking early solo albums, and his quixotic championing of world music.

Then: As the frontman of ‘90s band Semisonic, Dan Wilson notched a timeless hit with the bar anthem “Closing Time.” Since then, the Grammy-winner has become an in-demand songwriter for big name artists: he co-wrote Adele’s “Someone Like You” and the Dixie Chicks’ “Not Ready to Make Nice.” Now, he's readying his first solo album since 2007. Hear him perform songs live in the Soundcheck studio.
