Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers

Monday, May 30, 2011

Actor, author and comedian Steve Martin released his debut album as a banjo player two years ago. But he first picked up the instrument as a teenager and later incorporated it into his hit stand-up act during the 1970s. He joins us with his backing band to play songs from the album, “Rare Bird Alert.”

This is a repeat edition of Soundcheck.
