This week on Bullseye:

Jesse talks to Huey Lewis about his pub rock beginnings, his multi-platinum success with the album Sports, and how he wrote songs for movies like Back to the Future and Pineapple Express. He also talks about the time he snuck onto an airplane bound for London. Then, from free flights to free phone calls. Find out how “phreakers” were able to use computerized tones to unlock an entire phone network. Heck, one guy did it just by whistling the right way. Phil Lapsley will talk about his book “Exploding The Phone: The Untold Story of The Teenagers and Outlaws Who Hacked Ma Bell”.

Listen to this week's episode!

Really great episode. I had no idea Huey Lewis was so rad. And, I cracked up at Jesse's very quick (and then passed over) Ray Charles joke.

If you had told me a month ago that I'd be listening to a Huey Lewis interview while I did grocery shopping, I wouldn't have believed you.

Fascinating interview, topped off by a great section on phone phreaking that got me through preparing supper.

Bullseye is always great - even if the guest isn't someone you thought you'd be interested in.
