Bosley, Spare Rooms, and Megillat Esther

soul singer Bosley Brown, the movie Spare Rooms, and the graphic novel, Megillat Esther...


Charm City’s high-octane, retro-cool, soul sensation Bosley Brown is a musical hurricane in a suit and tie, and he drops in on producer Aaron Henkin to share some tunes from his new album, The Dirty Dogs Radio Show.

"The key to a good lie is in its detail." That’s a line from Spare Rooms, a new film by Baltimore-based writer and director Mathew Bowden. The film tells a “family fiction” that closely resembles Bowden’s own childhood - growing up in a rural, same-sex household in the nineteen-eighties.  Bowden and film producer Joe Tropea speak to The Signal’s Lisa Morgan about the making of the movie.

This weekend, Jews celebrate the annual holiday of Purim, a day of unrestrained celebration that usually involves… a lot of booze.  Purim has its roots in the Bible’s Book of Esther – it’s a bewildering story with more plot twists than a Hollywood thriller (and just about as much sex and violence). JT Waldman is the creator of Megillat Esther, which re-tells the saga, in the form of a graphic novel.  He visits with producer Aaron Henkin.
