One of the founders of pub-rock, a frequent collaborator with Elvis Costello, and the stepson-in-law to the late Johnny Cash. Tonight I honor one of my favorite songwriters, Nick Lowe. I’m joined by Chris Browne, who knows almost as much about Nick as he does Mr. Costello. Here’s what’s on the super-sized show tonight:
