Regina Spektor – NPR Interview (24 May 2012)


A video I made of the broadcast interview “Regina Spektor Still Doesn’t Write Anything Down” at National Public Radio (NPR) Music on 24 May 2012 with Regina Spektor. It is so refreshing to listen to this very popular artist who is not so full of herself, is so “normal” and natural, pleasant and honest. I’ve seen her six times now during the last 2 years (and still counting) and know that this is how she is ALL the time … so grateful to those who have made it possible for her to make music and so unselfish and generous in the way she wants everyone to have access to it, even if it means letting them have it for free or for very little cost.
