We recently had author Stephen Prothero on to discuss his new book 'The American Bible,' which deals with the texts throughout American history that typify the American experience and continue to generate controversy, interest and discussion.
Many listeners called in to say that it would be interesting to apply this lens to music. Which songs and artists exemplify the American spirit and experience?
Jim McGuinn, music director for MPR's The Current, will join The Daily Circuit Tuesday to discuss his picks. David Browne, contributing editor to Rolling Stone, will also join the discussion.
What's a great song about the American experience? Comment on the blog.
