In the Mix

Retro Music Special (#428)

Over the last few years "In the Mix" has hung out with some of the hottest artists in the world of music. Some have been one-hit wonders and have dropped off the music radar. But others, from Tori Amos and Natalie Merchant to Will Smith, the Beastie Boys and Coolio, are still in the spotlight and making music. This episode revisits past interviews with these artists. Along the way, viewers meet some of the teen reporters who have worked with "In the Mix" over the years and have since left the show to go off to college, pursue their careers or because they simply became too old. In their place, fresh-faced and eager young "In the Mix" fans hope to nab a steady gig on the show. [28 minutes] Closed Captioning
