Today on Soundcheck, a look at a new book by The A.V. Club's Nathan Rabin, Weird Al: The Book. Who better to talk about the one-of-a-kind comedian and musical parodist Weird Al Yankovic than Weird Al himself. Yankovic joins host John Schaffer to discuss his life, his long-lasting career and the new biography.
Then Portland indie rock band Menomena stops by the Soundcheck studio to perform songs from its latest record Moms.
