Listen Here; Apple Podcasts  |  Stitcher |  Radio Public  | Google Play  |  Spotify | RSS

Spade Cooley was one of the Postwar America’s biggest celebrities and most talented musicians. He was also a violent, drunk and homicidal psychopath who had no heart. Mean, jealous, abusive and almost totally driven by the deep seeded insecurity that he wasn’t good enough for any of the women who flocked to see him in concert, on television and on the movie screen, Spade Cooley couldn’t bare the thought of his wife with another man so he he did the unthinkable and what followed was at the time, the trial of the century.

Disgraceland is a new true crime podcast about musicians getting away with murder and behaving very badly.

Jerry Lee Lewis’ 5th wife? Dead. Sam Cooke 3AM in a seedy motel? Dead. Sid and Nancy? Dead. Why? Because musicians are crazy. Because insane things happen to them. Because we love them. And because we let them get away with it.

Murder! Suicide! Religious Cults! Tupac! Beck! The Stones sleeping with the first lady — wait… what?

If you love true crime and you love music get ready to love Disgraceland.
