Rockabilly artist JD McPherson has had a busy year promoting the rerelease of his debut record, Signs and Signifiers (which was our CD of the Week earlier this year). When he stopped by The Current studios in July for a performance, he had just finished traveling through 3 countries in 5 days. JD McPherson visited the MPR booth to talk with Mary Lucia and play some tunes for the crowd.
