BBC Radio 2 produced a two-part documentary on the chitlin’ circuit. One of the voices in there belongs to me. See if you can guess which one. Part I chronicles the big band era and Part II delves into the rise of rock ‘n’ roll. Segments run an hour, hosted by Welsh singer Cerys Matthews.
Here’s a history meets the headlines longview. The better part of a year in the making, “Memphis Burning” follows the smoke signals and the millions to the story of inequality, power, and race in a vital American city. Along the way, you’ll meet Bob Church, Boss Crump, witness burning, bombing, and veer into a sex scandal. Thanks to Places Journal, Andrea Morales, and the Kresge Foundation.
