A new book looks at the music favored by four great icons of the 1960's, including Dr. King

As we salute the accomplishments and vision of Dr. King this weekend, there was, of course, another side of the man. A unique aspect of his, and 3 other influential men of the 1960’s, is the music they loved, that inspired them, or that entertained them. In his book, Popology: The Music of the Era in the Lives of Four Icons of the 1960s, author Timothy English takes a unique look at Dr. King, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Thomas Merton through the music in their lives. The author joins Lee Hay by phone to share what their taste in music said about them.
