Tuesday, Oct. 15 - Live from KGNU The Dark Legend of Detroit Blue

Live from KGNUs studios The Dark Legend of Detroit Blue written by Hugo Sayles with musical guest Lionel Young. Listen on KGNU or stream live on kgnu.org. The Dark Legend of Detroit Blue takes place in 1933 in Detroit, Michigan. Evil needs, create evil intentions, and this is the story of a dark soul. Detroit Blue had walked down murderers way so many times, and on this day it would be with his knife. Our killer lives in the darkness of places like this dim hallway. In the dimness of the doorway, he heard a soft, Mmmff, as he drove his blade home. Wrong target. Very wrong. Even one as evil as Detroit Blue can hit a point of profound regret. He felt a need to be something . . . someone else . . . not a killer . . . never a killer. Never Detroit Blue. But evil always find evil.
