1. Steven Soderberghwho directed the new HBO Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra, talks to Terry Gross about the significance of the flamboyant performer’s style:

    You could make an argument that Liberace really invented the idea of ‘bling.’ mean, nobody was dressing themselves like this. When you look at the people that have followed him — whether it’s Elvis or Elton john or Cher or Madonna or Lady Gaga — you know, all these people are sort of building on something that he began.”
