Huey Lewis 07 05 2009Huey Lewis and the News have released a new original album, called Weather, their first in almost twenty years. But while they were in the process of recording, Huey faced a serious setback – He’s losing his hearing due to Ménière's disease. While they were still able to finish the record, they had to cancel the tour. Today, Huey explains what exactly happened the night he realized something was very wrong, but also how he’s stayed positive. Plus, we’ll hear some great stories, including one about the time he stowed away on a plane to Europe. That’s next, on the World Cafe with host Raina Douris.
