Experiments in news and arts with Jude Cowan Montague. This week: Mitch Friedman on the popular art of America, comedy and commercials. The writer and musician speaks from his home town of New York about the state of the nation and his memoir about wearing a hairpiece for a year, 'Hell Toupee.' Much of Friedman's work is a commentary on American commercialism and how it feels to be an avid consumer of pop art. With tracks from his albums, including his latest release, 'Breaking Muse.'
