It's the Sweet 16 episode of the podcast. Raise a glass to one of Cape Cod's Prohibition-era speakeasy's. The Casa Madrid sat among the trees in a quiet village of South Yarmouth, Massachusetts however inside the unique building was a raucous party atmosphere. The only thing bigger than the party was the raid that exposed the illegal activities going on inside.
Before streaming apps like Pandora and Spotify, even before satellite radio like Sirius and XM, there was Digital Music Express. The bridge between traditional radio and what we have today DMX was ahead of its time. What was it and what happened to it? We go Back In the Day to find out.
I pull the curtain back a little as I share the reasons behind my decision to give up alcohol. I hope it inspires or motivates those looking to quit themselves, or that many of you can relate with dealing with your own vices.
There is a loaded This Week In History here. Not only was this the week that President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, but it was also the week of the sinking of the unsinkable Titanic. There's more too including a Time Capsule featuring the first McDonald's opening.
Also be sure to check out my livestreams called Without A Map Friday's at 8pm on Instagram which serve as a sort of postgame show for the podcast. Find them on IGTV and YouTube after they've finished.
