Rodriguez - From Obscuro to Hero

Image
Sixto Rodriguez rises from the record bin of history. Sixto Rodriguez is having his moment in the limelight. Finally. The 70-year-old singer-songwriter from Detroit has been touring regularly since the beginning of the year, playing festivals in North America and Europe. He recently took the stage as the opening act for Animal Collective. It’s a remarkable run for any musician. But when you consider Rodriguez hasn’t released any new music in more than four decades, the attention he’s now receiving feels downright miraculous. “This is beyond anything I would have imagined,” says Rodriguez, speaking from his home in Michigan. “It’s almost grotesque, a huge leap from here to way over there. Top o’ the world, Ma!” To be fair, that huge leap didn’t happen out of thin air. All of this chatter was stirred up by the release of Searching for Sugar Man, Swedish filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul’s documentary about the unusual trajectory of the septuagenarian musician’s career. A quick r

NPR Interview with Rodriguez

Click here to listen Legends rarely disappear. But Sixto Rodriguez that did just that. A singer from 1960s and '70s Detroit, Rodriguez (whose surname is also his performing title), had some of the lyric quality of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, but a voice like James Taylor. Cold Fact, his debut album, layered his aching voice over Motown horns and strings. Though there was plenty of buildup, Cold Fact never became a hit in the United States. But bootlegged copies made the album — and the singer — a legend in a South Africa in ferment over apartheid. Then the short, sensational career of Rodriguez ended in spectacular fashion. Rumors of a grotesque death abounded; one even suggested the singer set himself alight onstage one night, burning to death before the crowd. A new documentary called Searching for Sugar Man explains what really happened. The film's director, Malik Bendjelloul, says the saga of Cold Fact was shrouded in mystery from the very start.

Half Ton Killer - Murder Mystery airs tonight!

Half-Ton Killer? follows one of the most controversial and shocking murder mysteries in recent U.S. history. Mayra Rosales, one of the world's heaviest women, confessed to killing her nephew while baby-sitting. But the facts just didn't add up. In a Texas border town, along a major corridor known for drugs and human trafficking, Rosales was bedridden from obesity. She claimed that she accidentally crushed and killed her two year-old nephew. Immediately, the case took fire. The media wanted to bring her to justice, citizens demanded their tax dollars go elsewhere, and the judicial system scrambled for a solution. Her attorney, Sergio Valdez, questioned the confession. The boy’s injuries appeared to be no accident, and Rosales -- deathly ill from pneumonia and weighing 1,100 pounds -- required 10 men and an extra-large ambulance to even reach the hospital. An investigation into her family's suspicious behavior revealed a story far more sinister than anyone could
