He is one of the most recognizable names in music history. Paul Simon has had a long and illustrious career both as part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel and as a solo artist. Simon has earned 16 Grammy awards, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, first with Simon & Garfunkel in 1990 and then solo in 2001.

Peter Ames Carlin, the author of Homeward Bound: The Life of Paul Simon, is our guest to this week's show.
