STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Tony Blinken, President-elect Biden's choice for secretary of state, has much diplomatic experience and experience of a different kind. Blinken has a band called Ablinken making what he describes as wonk rock. He has two original songs on Spotify, where you can judge them for yourself.
