Master songwriter Neil Finn, one of the most influential in pop music over the past few decades, joins Jian as today's Friday Live guest. He's behind some of the most timeless songs from the 1980s: think of I Got You, Don't Dream it's Over and Better Be Home Soon.

Finn, along with his brother Tim, was the co-frontman of new wave pop band Split Enz and well as critically-acclaimed Crowded House.

As solo performer, Finn has combined his formidable songwriting chops with a new sound that has virtually redefined him as an artist. He performs from his latest album, Dizzy Heights, throughout the show.
