This week’s episode focused on “The Voodoo Queen of New Orleans” Marie Laveau. Listen closely at the 34-minute mark to catch Shel Silverstein, the reputable songwriter and poet highlighted for his song "Marie Laveau" which he co-wrote with Baxter Taylor. The song was first recorded by Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show in 1971 but hit it big in 1974 when Bobby Bare’s recording spent a total of 18 weeks on the country charts!
