Past Billy Joel Band Members and GIG ECONOMY Director Up Next On Tom Needham's SOUNDS OF FILM


Billy Joel Band's Liberty DeVitto and Richie Cannata, and THE GIG ECONOMY's Keif Roberts are Tom Needham's special guests this Thursday on WUSB's SOUNDS OF FILM.

THE GIG ECONOMY, a deep dive into the gig economy, reveals its promise and pitfalls through intimate portraits of workers and interviews with leading experts. The gig economy promises freedom, flexibility and entrepreneurship to workers, but does not emphasize the many problems.

Keif Roberts is an award winning filmmaker. He has directed or co-directed several documentaries, including Anxious, South Bronx United, Under the Bus, Peter Pan Bakery, Working Horses, The Breach, Analog Dreams and Sick School. He has worked with ABC-TV, WPIX, NYRA, The ASPCA, DIY Network and New York Road Runners.

Longtime Billy Joel drummer Liberty DeVitto and musician Richie Cannata will also be special guests this Thursday on the Sounds of Film. Liberty played drums on every Billy Joel album from 1976-1993, including the albums Turnstiles, The Stranger, 52nd Street, Glass Houses, and An Innocent Man. He is also prominently featured in the documentary Billy Joel: A Matter of Trust - The Bridge to Russia. Richie joined them on the "Turnstiles," where he would play that amazing solo on New York State of Mind.
