Jon Shain grew up in a run-down mill town outside of Boston, but got a sense for the finer things in life at Duke University. He also became aware that the well off don’t always recognize the plight of the poor.

His concern for social justice often makes its way into his music. His new album is called “Ordinary Cats.” Host Frank Stasio talks to him about his life and work.
