Blondieis back! The new wave icons behind "Heart of Glass"and "Call Me"are back with their eleventh studio album, "Pollinator."The new album features unexpected collaborations (Dev Hynes of Blood Orange, Charli XCX, Sia, among others) but still has that classic Blondie sound. Debbie Harry and Chris Stein join us in studio to talk about musical influences, the good old days at CBGB, and a surprising new hobby.
