    Watch: Randy Newman Featured on CBS Sunday Morning with His Family's "Movie Music Dynasty"
    CBS

    Randy Newman was on CBS Sunday Morning as part of the show's special Academy Awards episode, in a feature on his family and their "movie music dynasty." The segment looks at the family's deep roots in the film-scoring business, going back to his uncle Alfred Newman, and including his uncles Emil Newman and Lionel Newman, his cousins David Newman and Thomas Newman (Revolutionary Road, Angels in America), his nephew Joey Newman, and Randy Newman's own highly successful career in Hollywood—tying his uncle Alfred for the most Academy Award nominations in the family at twenty for such films as Ragtime, The Natural, and Toy Story, and Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story 3, for which he won Oscars for Best Original Song.

    "There are Newmans everywhere dotting Hollywood history from the beginning. It's one-of-a-kind. It's an extraordinary story," film-music historian John Burlingame tells CBS Sunday Monring. "When you look at the individuals and you see how talented each one of them is in their own way, when you put it all together, it's a bit mind-boggling."

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi were on NPR's World Cafe to perform from the new album there is no Other and talk with host Talia Schlanger. It's "a fascinating collaboration," says Schlanger. "Both Rhiannon and Francesco are devoted students of music history whose mission is to use the past to illuminate the present and to give credit where credit’s due for the way instruments and ideas have moved over time between people. They used all that knowledge to make gorgeous music together on a new album called there is no Other." Hear the episode here.

    The latest episode of Robert Plant's new podcast series, Digging Deep, digs deep into "Bones of Saints," a song from his latest album, Carry Fire. "It's about vitality. I can't hold back the hands of time or anything like that, but I can only be in environments where people really, really mean it musically," Plant says of creating new music with his band the Sensational Space Shifters. "We have a kind of inherent capacity to start a new project and know that we have business to do ... If it gets anywhere at all, this music, it ought to be saying something, it ought to be reflecting." You can listen to the episode and watch the video for the track here.
