This installment of Vintage Cafe takes us back to 2008, when Jackson Browne had just released Time the Conqueror — at the time his first studio release in six years — which mixes the personal with the political.

From the '70s into the '80s, the singer's work made a move into more political songcraft — a change that didn't always thrill his original fans. Browne has been outspoken on many political issues over the years, most notably voicing his opposition to nuclear energy.

This segment originally ran on Nov. 7, 2008.
