In this mini-episode of Hit Parade, host Chris Molanphy is joined by Alfred Soto, Florida International University journalism professor and a music critic whose appreciation of the late Christine McVie appeared in Billboard magazine. Alfred and Chris expand on the latest full-length episode about McVie, the longest-tenured singer-songwriter in Fleetwood Mac, whom Alfred calls their “poet laureate of the morning after.” He says McVie could have styled herself as a ’70s singer-songwriter, like Carole King or Joni Mitchell, but she gave her songs to Fleetwood Mac because she thrived in bands.
Next, Chris quizzes a Slate Plus listener with some music trivia, gives him a chance to turn the tables with a question of his own, and previews next month’s full-length episode. Slate Plus members can sign up for a chance to be our trivia contestant on a future episode here.
