This Song: Robert Delong // John Chao of Misha

This week we have the tale of two ten-year-olds. First, the saga of a young Robert Delong (now a songwriter and electronic musician), who as a young boy, heard the song “Stardust” while listening to a cassette of Orson Wells’ “War Of The Worlds” and was then inspired to seek out the harmony that song revealed to him.  Then multi-instrumentalist and sing-songwriter John Chao tells the story of how inadequate record store categorization lead him to his hearing the album “Kiko” by Los Lobos and inspired some his best work.
