In this episode of "The Things I Think About Podcast," I have a very interesting conversation with Gary Revel. Who is that? Read on.
The deaths of JFK, his brother Bobby and the formidable, iconic, Martin Luther King Jr. are open-and-shut cases, right? Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan and James Earl Ray did it … right?
"Not so!" writes acclaimed author Gary Revel in his new book, To Live or Maybe Not, and theme song, “They Slew the Dreamer,” adding that his work is “historically accurate, and an often edge of your seat, first-person, up-close account that sets the record straight.”
Revel offers a behind the scenes look at the dramatic yet terrifying walls of the infamous Brushy Mountain Prison of East Tennessee, where he walked and talked with the much written about (“alleged”) assassin of Martin Luther King Jr., James Earl Ray.
