If you haven’t looked at the title of this episode yet, let me give you a little quiz of your musical knowledge to help introduce today’s topic.
What does these things have in common? The Pretenders’ brass, Perry Como’s falling star, Natasha Bedingfield’s sunshine, Alanis Morissette's hand, and P-Money’s cash? They’re all kept in the subject of this episode.
I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Pockets.
The role of Harry Houdini was played by Brian Earl from the podcast, Illusion.
