Director's Cuts: The 10th Anniversary Edition

Liane Hansen isn't the only one celebrating 20 years at Weekend Edition this week. It's my 20th year on the program as well, and the 10th since we began making Director's Cuts recommendations.

For this decade anniversary, I decided to check up on three alumni of Director's Cuts: film composer Steve Ulrich, also of a band called Big Lazy; folk singer Carol Noonan; and singer-songwriter Tom Freund.
