Back when the B-52s were just a party band from Athens, Georgia, trying to make it big, singer Kate Pierson lugged one thick book from town to town as they toured.
"Memories, Dreams, Reflections" by Carl Jung soon became something of a talisman for the band. It’s a story she tells in this installment of Page-Turners.
Pierson has also released her first solo album, called "Guitars and Microphones." She began the conversation by explaining why it’s coming out only now, almost 40 years into her music career.
She is performing at the Variety Playhouse Friday.
