This week on the show we interview artist and musician CHANDRA! In the 80s a twelve-year-old Chandra fronted her very own mutant-disco, post-punk group and recorded the recently reissued cult-classic TRANSPORTATION! We talk to Chandra about her current work, helping kids to write music, and we run down a roster of the stranger characters she's encountered in her career, including Captain Kangaroo, Andy Warhol, and the not-so-strange Jennifer Connelly!

Correction: In the interview, Chandra speculates it was Richard Linklater who nearly made a Chandra documentary for SNL--it was in fact director Jonathan Demme.
