In our Friday morning episode, we're revisiting the traditional form of the murder ballad and we'll also take some liberties with some more modern takes from the likes of Tom Waits, Gillian Welch, and Nick Cave. In the traditional form we'll measure centuries-old cultural aberrations with the stories of gamblers, ramblers, and murdering misogynists that peppered the landscapes of country gospel, Appalachian folk, and urban alleyways. Frankie, Johnny, Stack-O-Lee, William Zanzinger, and Ellen Smith are just a few of the players in today's show. Join Dave Stroud for a journey through tradition this Friday evening on Community Radio for Sonoma County.
