Show 51: Lead Belly

Lead Belly was not exactly the Raffi of the Roosevelt era. Convicted of murder and attempted murder, the man born Huddie Ledbetter on January 20, 1888 began his singing career in the 1930’s. Today’s program features Lead Belly playing 12-string guitar and singing the songs that made him the Pied Piper for children growing up during the 1940’s.
