Legacy Podcasts’ Black History Month series continues with a four-part look at the highly influential career of Sam Cooke. You’ll hear music from throughout his career that displays the great bredth of his talent before his tragic death in 1964 at the age of 33 – from his gospel roots to his upbeat classic hits, and from his high energy live concerts to his recordings of late-night mood pieces. Interview subjects include R&B legend Bobby Womack, Sam’s brother L.C. Cooke, and drummer Hal Blaine.
Look for updates every Wednesday all February!
