Connections: Eddie Money and his new musical, "Two Tickets to Paradise"

Eddie Money is one of the biggest rock stars in American history, and he's still doing it. Only now, he's taking his act to Rochester in a new musical. Money fell in love with the stage at the performing arts center on Ridge Road when he was in town for the Lilac Festival, and now he's here to launch a world premier.

We discuss Money's career, his successful battle with addiction, the new show, and more. Our guests:
