‘Weird: The Al Yankovic Story’ , a parody of “based on true story biopics,” has premiered on The Roku Channel and we thought this is was perfect time to revisit our fun conversation with ”Weird Al”!
We are thrilled to be joined this week by an icon of American pop culture, the parody king and the coolest man with an accordion, ”Weird Al” Yankovic. He’s sold over 12 million albums, spoofed the biggest artists from Michael Jackson, to Nirvana, to Coolio, to Miley Cyrus. A career that spans four decades. Join us for a conversation about his musical process, capturing the zeitgeist, asking Kurt Cobain and Sir Paul McCartney for permission to parody their music, the pure magic of the accordion, and much more.
