Sam Sadigursky is a special guest for this go-round, and the talk ranges from his pledge of fidelity to the clarinet, to his experiences in Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, to his lengthy tour of duty in a big time Broadway production, to his thoughts about bass-clarinet specialist Jason Stein. After he escapes the bastards' clutches, talk turns to two brand new releases and then settles, as it should, on Curtis Mayfield's fashion choices in Pop Matters.
