At the holidays, the best kind of "Wrapped" is physical media (records, CDs, and even music books) nicely wrapped and placed under the tree. From time to time we do episodes about music books that celebrate the art of record making, and on this one we speak with author Ben Greenman who worked with the legendary Sly Stone, to give us the memoir Thank You (Faletinme Be Mice Elf Agin) out now from AUWA Books, with a foreword by the publisher, Questlove himself. We also spoke with Slate's Chris Molanphy about his extensive study of the historically significant Lil Nas X hit, "Old Town Road," in his book Old Town Road, out now from Duke University Press. And Bay Area journalist Joel Selvin speaks on behalf of his late co-author, Arhoolie Records founder and mainstay Chris Strachwitz, about their new book Down Home Music, featuring Strachwitz's photographs from travels in the American rural south to curate the music that inspired a generation.  And RSD's Carrie Colliton explains the new RSD MRKT initiative and even recommends a few books of her own.

The RSD Podcast is written, produced, engineered and hosted by Paul Myers, who also composed the theme music and selected interstitial music.
