Light of Day #5 — Interview/Music Elvis Costello and Sting

Another one of those randomly happened across things that brought joy to me.  The whole video is more than 30 minutes, but even watching the first 10 minutes will do it.  Now that I know this series exists, I need to try to get both seasons.  Cmon library, please open (when the time is right, of course.)

      When Sting cried, I was already crying. Stewart is a funny guy.
