Stagger Lee and John Henry are legends of popular culture and popular music, and I’ve heard songs about them over the years, but never really knew much about who they were and what they did.
Jason Chervokas changed that for me and will change it for you, if you wish, with his latest edition of Down In The Flood, his weekly podcast on american roots music.
It’s 39 minutes of history and music and its simply great.
You can listen live over the Internet here.
Or you can download it into iTunes (v 4.9) by selecting Advanced, Subscribe to Podcast, and then entering this into the box:
iTunes will do the rest for you.
Either way, I highly recommend this show to anyone with an interest in american music and popular culture.
