9/23/2008 Dig Up The Roots


Today's show was preempted of an hour, so we sat back and listened in to some stories. The first was a news story of a little boy falling in a well from 1957 - and you thought that was an urban legend? We heard tales of jazz from Wally Cox and Jack Kerouac. Utah Phillips, Tom Waits, Muhammad Ali Laurie Anderson all somehow fit into the program.
