    Charles Manson the Music Man: Lost Records and a Prosecutorial Song too Crazy to Sing

    Charles Manson the Music Man: Lost Records and a Prosecutorial Song too Crazy to Sing

    In and out of juvie and jail since childhood, Charles Manson learned guitar in prison from the last of the great Depression-era gangsters. He also made music industry connections in jail like the Rolling Stones’ road manager. During the "Summer of Love", Manson bounced from prison and took his act to San Francisco, formed a drug-soaked sex cult, moved the whole Family to L.A., and before you could say “celebrity orgy,” he was hanging with Neil Young, the Mamas and the Papas, and the Beach Boys. Charles Manson was about to be the breakout star of 1969…at least in his own mind.

    Robert Johnson: Voodoo, Delta Blues, Cursing God, and a Crossroads

    Robert Johnson: Voodoo, Delta Blues, Cursing God, and a Crossroads

    Robert Johnson didn’t just play the blues. He embodied them. He drank and womanized his way through the South, New York, and Chicago in the 1930s, until he finally met the devil at the crossroads for a little trade. So the legend goes, anyway. With the same soul he supposedly sold to the devil, Robert Johnson belted lightning blues that captured trouble in 12 bars. But the trouble he touted would eventually trickle into his own life, one bottle of poison at a time.




    This episode contains themes that may be disturbing to some listeners and includes descriptions of racial violence and traumatic childbirth.
