Death in Paradise: An Illustrated History of the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner :Brad Schreiber  

Unnatural celebrity deaths and unnaturally celebrated murders pockmark the history of Los Angeles, looming as large in the public imagination as the Hollywood stars themselves. Death in Paradise is the first authorized history of the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office, revisiting the most culturally significant and forensically complex cases of accidental death, suicide or murder of the famous. It documents the notorious deaths of Senator Robert Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Sharon Tate, Janis Joplin and many others, providing an unflinching view of Tinseltown’s dark, even perverse underbelly. Brad Schreiber, who wrote the original hardcover for book packager Tony Blanche, has updated many of the fascinating cases in Death in Paradise and added new photographs for this e-book edition. Schreiber, who created the truTV series North Mission Road inspired by this book, also presents some of the lesser-known but most puzzling deaths in the history of Hollywood. Did 1930s comedy film star Thelma Todd accidentally die of carbon monoxide poisoning in her own garage, commit suicide or was she killed by the jealous lover who locked her out of her own house? Death in Paradise highlights the bizarre as well as the renowned. There’s the story of a funhouse dummy that got broken during a TV show filming, only to reveal the mummy of a Wild West gunslinger underneath. Or how about the murderer of a woman who was caught, based upon the ingredients in the exotic cocktail found in his victim’s stomach? In addition to these mind-bending investigations, Death in Paradise summarizes the surprising origins of early historical medical examiners, the development of forensic science and, of course, the rise of the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner, the most technologically advanced in the world…and the only one with its own gift shop.

Stand By For Crime - Death On The Tracks (1953)  


Death On The Tracks (1953) *The Exact Date Is Unknown.
This show, from the early 1950s, is a good example of the true story style of delivery made popular in radio's classic crime shows Gangbusters and Mr. District Attorney. Of course, the best and most popular of the true crime shows was Dragnet -- the monotone, "just the facts" style demanded by Jack Webb in the show made two points at once: first, that the show wasn't a typical melodramatic crime show, as had been on radio since "the good old days", and more importantly, that we were along for the ride on another day at the office -- in this case, a policeman's “day at the office". Not a true crime show, as this is drama, but this show features Chuck Morgan, as played by Glen Langen, a very believable news anchor at KOP, a Los Angeles radio station. He is pals with Lieutenant Bill Miggs of the police force, who tips him off to hot crime news. Also in on the capers is Morgan's "Gal Friday", Carol Curtis, played by Adele Jurgens. The three meet all types -- mostly on the shady side of the street. In real life, Glen and Adele were husband and wife, the two marrying in 1949. They had met on the movie set of The Treasure of Monte Cristo.

Disco Grande - Las tablas de la ley de Apartamentos Acapulco - 27/04/17  

Como diez mandamientos. Como si estuvieran escritos en las tablas en los brazos de Moisés. En números romanos del I al X. Esos son los "Nuevos testamentos". Las diez canciones entre las que hay temas antiguos (aquel "Bing Bong", casi principio de todas las cosas), pero revisitados, y temas nuevos. Y alguno incluso con la anécdota de que se llamaba de una forma y ahora de otra aunque conserve la vieja denominación (véase "El almendro (nuestro motor)" entre paréntesis. O canciones en préstamo. Como la "Canción de Sergio".  De ese disco que ya está en vinilo (después llega el digital y más tarde el CD) y que marca el formato en largo (los tres EPs anteriores ya están agotados y son objeto de coleccionismo) y que fue un fetiche del pasado Record Store Day estuvimos hablando con nuestro grupo ganador de la etiqueta de "artista emergente" en 2015. Apartamentos Acapulco adelantaron en un día su presencia en Madrid para estar con nosotros en el programa. Y es que este jueves es un día grande (también lo harán en su tierra de Granada) pues ejercerán de teloneros del concierto de Los Planetas en el Circo Price de Madrid con todo vendido. La progresión en la nombradía de la banda sigue su camino. De sus inicios en Discos Imaginarios (y con Alfonso presumiendo con total justicia también del "yo les ví primero") a esta entrega con el respaldo de El Volcán y El Ejército Rojo. Y luego, por otra parte, la cuidada evolución de su sonido buscando nuevos caminos.

Noticia del día son los carteles en murales de distintas ciudades como Londres, Amsterdam, Berlín, Nueva York o Los Angeles con aproximaciones a la leyenda del texto de la canción distinta de ese "Ok Computer" de Radiojhead que cumple veinte años ahora. Otro aniversario redondo, en este caso, son cuarenta, para el "Exodus" de Bob Marley (su hijo Ziggy ha hecho remezclas sobre las grabaciones originales) & The Wailers. En clave local la nueva entrega de "Suena Guernica" (véase en Radio 3 y Radio 3 Extra) tiene como protagonistas a Marlango.

Novedad del día es una canción de otro proyecto (Modern Cosmology) capitaneado por Laetitia Sadier mientras escuchábamos el único tema que nos restaba del EP de The Primitives, "New thrills".

El calendario de invitados nos traerá el miércoles 3 a The Handsome Family coincidiendo con sus tres fechas españolas y el homenaje del día al Pepper´s lo pusieron The Magic Numbers de cuando la obra de The Beatles cumplía 40 años.

The Road to Sparta: How Dean Karnazes Relived The Ancient Battle & Epic Run That Inspired The World's Greatest Footrace  

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/roadtosparta In 490 BCE, some masochistic Greek guy named Pheidippides ran for 36 hours straight from Athens to Sparta to seek help in defending Athens from a Persian invasion in the Battle of Marathon. In doing so, he saved the development of Western civilization and inspired the birth of the marathon as we know it. Even now, some 2,500 years later, that run stands enduringly as one of greatest physical accomplishments in the history of mankind. Dean Karnazes, my guest on today's podcast, came up with the crazy idea of honoring Pheidippides (and Dean's own Greek heritage) by recreating this entire ancient journey in modern times. During his run, Karnazes even abstained from contemporary endurance nutrition like sports drinks and energy gels and only ate what was available in 490 BCE, such as figs, olives, cured meats and even some stuff called "mastic gum". Then he wrote about the whole experience is his new book "The Road to Sparta: Reliving the Ancient Battle and Epic Run That Inspired the World's Greatest Footrace". The new book is intriguing, comical, sometimes tear-jerking, and certainly thought-provoking and entertaining, and Dean is probably even more intriguing. Get a load of this guy... TIME magazine named Dean one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World.” Men’s Fitness hailed him as one of the fittest men on the planet. Stan Lee called him, “Super Human.” He's an acclaimed endurance athlete and NY Times bestselling author, who has pushed his body and mind to inconceivable limits. Among his many accomplishments, he has run 350 continuous miles, foregoing sleep for three nights. He’s run across the Sahara Desert in 120-degree temperatures, and he’s run a marathon to the South Pole in negative 40 degrees. On ten different occasions he’s run a 200-mile relay race solo, racing alongside teams of twelve. He has swum the San Francisco Bay, scaled mountains, bike raced for 24-hours straight, and surfed the gigantic waves off the coast of Hawaii & California. His long list of competitive achievements include winning the world’s toughest footrace, the Badwater Ultramarathon, running 135 miles nonstop across Death Valley during the middle of summer. He has raced and competed on all seven continents of the planet, twice over. In 2006 he accomplished the seemingly impossible by running 50 marathons, in all 50 US states, in 50 consecutive days, finishing with the NYC Marathon, which he ran in three hours flat! In 2011 Dean ran 3,000-miles from the coast of California to New York City, averaging 40 to 50-miles per day (one day covering more than 70!). Along the way he stopped at schools to speak to students about the importance of exercise and healthy eating. When passing through Washington DC, he was invited to run through the White House to meet with First Lady Michelle Obama and be honored for his tireless commitment to helping this country get back in shape. Dean and his incredible adventures have been featured on The Today Show, 60 Minutes, The Late Show with David Letterman, CBS News, CNN, ESPN, The Howard Stern Show, NPR’s Morning Edition, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the BBC, and many others. He has appeared on the cover of Runner’s World, Outside, and Wired magazine’s, and has been featured in TIME, Newsweek, People, GQ, The New York Times, USA TODAY, The Washington Post, Men’s Journal, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, The Los Angeles Times, and the London Telegraph, to mention a few. Dean is the winner of an ESPN ESPY and a 3-time recipient of Competitor magazines Endurance Athlete of the Year award. Dean has also raised millions of dollars for charity and was awarded the prestigious Community Leadership Award by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. During our discussion, you'll discover: -Why it is a myth that Pheidippides ran 26.2 miles...[14:50] -How humans can actually outrun horses...[19:30] -Whether Dean ran barefoot or in leather sandals in the same way that Pheidippides did...[22:30] -The hardest part of Dean's entire run...[30:45] -How it went for Dean to eat for this race different than he ate for your other races, and why he chewed on something called "mastic gum"...[38:55] -How Dean ran for 70+ miles with no food...[41:15] -Why Dean adds rosemary to his coffee and consumes large amounts of wild salmon...[46:15] -How Dean recovers so darn fast between his events, and why he bulked up before his 50 marathons in 50 days...[51:00] -Why Dean splits his day into multiple 12-14 minute body weight workouts, and what his exact routine is...[53:00] -How Dean manages with such little sleep when running marathons over multiple days...[57:50] -Dean's take on all the talk about chronic cardio being bad for testosterone levels, increased risk of mortality, etc...[63:05] -And much more! Resources from this episode: -Dean's book: The Road to Sparta: Reliving the Ancient Battle and Epic Run That Inspired the World's Greatest Footrace -My Waterlogged interview with Dr. Tim Noakes -Earthrunners sandals that Ben wears -The mastic gum capsules that Ben and Dean talk about -The chewable mastic gum straight from Greece that you can order from Amazon -The fat based energy gel article that Ben wrote -The Elliptigo elliptical trainer that Dean and Ben use -The Oura ring Ben uses to track his sleeping Do you have questions, thoughts or feedback for Dean or me?

Paraguay Heist Sparks Deadly Gun Battles  

Brazilian gangsters take advantage of the anarchy of south eastern Paraguay to carry out what is being called the heist of the century. A raid on a security company which blew up a building and killed a policeman, and may have netted as much as $40 million. The BBC's Daniel Gallas gives us the latest and Professor Peter Hakim is with the Inter-American Dialogue in Washington explains why this area of South America is a cause for concern. Ivanka Trump is widely known as the First Daughter, although she does now have an official title and role - presidential adviser. On Tuesday at a women's summit in Berlin she was booed after describing her father as a "tremendous champion of supporting families." There have also reports that some of her clothing line has been relabelled and sold to a discount chain. So how will Ivanka be dealing with all this? We ask Vanity Fair's Special Correspondent, Sarah Ellison. Today the music industry is celebrating some good news: a rise of almost 6 per cent in sales last year. Thanks in part to a 60 per cent rise in revenue from streaming. That's where you don't download the music onto your device. The BBC's Will Bain reports. All this and more discussed with our two guests on on opposite sides of the Pacific: Joanne Griffith of Marketplace, in Los Angeles and David Moser, Academic Director, CET Beijing Chinese Studies in Beijing.
