Radiolab - Crossroads
"In this short, we go looking for the devil, and find ourselves tangled in a web of details surrounding one of the most haunting figures in music--a legendary guitarist whose shadowy life spawned a legend so powerful, it's still being repeated...even by fans who don't believe a word of it."
Directly related: "As we investigated the myths surrounding the bluesman Robert Johnson for our short Crossroads, we found ourselves swimming in amazing music -- not just blues -- and we wanted to share it."
For example: Robert Johnson - Me and the Devil Blues.
