#150 - The Day the Music Died (Ken 'Snakehips' Johnson)

Today’s episode is about a music legend called Ken ‘Snake Hips’ Johnson; a bandleader who could have been one of the all-time greats had his brilliance not been snuffed-out before his time. Only his untimely death wasn’t brought-about because he was black and gay, but owing to one of the most random of tragedies.
