🎻Music, Murder, and History🗡️


Melissa Locker
Why did you choose this theme? 

Songs in the Key of Death is a new podcast that looks at murder ballads, songs that were the true crime of the day. This theme was inspired by the show.

Sad Ass Songs

When MacArthur Genius Grant winner Jad Abumrad implied on this show that he didn't know what a murder ballad was, Melissa decided they had to make a podcast to remind the world about this amazing category of songs.

Song Exploder
Sheryl Crow - Redemption Day (feat. Johnny Cash)

No podcast takes you behind the music like this one. Having the artists themselves walk you through the creation process for their songs is just magical for music nerds. Since the premiere episode of Melissa's new podcast focuses on Johnny Cash, she thought it would be fun to include the legendary Sheryl Crow's work with the Man in Black.

Songs In The Key of Death

This podcast looks at the true story behind "Delia," the song that saved Johnny Cash's career. While Cash sang about a low-down, trifling woman, the real story is darker, more tragic, and far too common.

You're Wrong About
The Chicks vs. The Iraq War

This show digs into stories that many people get wrong. This episode explains exactly how The Chicks went from being one of the biggest bands in music to being all but banished from the music industry, all for having a few questions about the Iraq War (and they were right!).

Lost Notes
Song of a Gun

Murder ballads tell the stories of gruesome crimes, but a lot of those crimes wouldn't happen without guns. This episode of KCRW's excellent Lost Notes takes a look at the history of music's relationships with guns.
