Well worth listening to!!
Thoroughly researched, each story she covers takes you back to when it actually happened. With each story you find out something you didn't know when you thought you heard it all. Now one of my favorite podcasts to listen to!! ( P.S. it’s been off for a while now. I wish it would come back!! 😢)
Loved your episode on Patsy Cline. But, unfortunately you were wrong on some of your info. Your info on the people who were on board was incorrect. This was my second post of inaccurate info..
Sal Mineo: Well done!
Wonderful, poignant re-telling of Sal Mineo’s life and senseless, untimely death.
