On Friday, Darlene Love, now a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, will grace Letterman's holiday show for the 18th time performing the very best Christmas song from the album, A Christmas Gift for You From Phil Spector.

Back in 1981, Marshall Crenshaw's single "Something's Gonna Happen" was released on Shake Records, initiating his string of critically acclaimed classic albums and 45s. Now Marshall, celebrating 30 years of music-making, sits down to talk.
