The mysterious disappearance of musician Jim Sullivan, Rudy Willingham talks samples

Sound & Vision
Hosted by Emily Fox
Jim Sullivan was a struggling LA singer/songwriter in the 60s and 70s. In 1975 he left for Nashville to see if he could catch a break there. But on the way, he disappeared in the New Mexico desert and was never seen again. Matt Sullivan of Light in the Attic records talks about the mysterious disappearance and how he discovered Jim Sullivan’s music and rereleased it decades later. Seattle’s Rudy Willingham talks about how he uses collage in both art and music, and discusses how he finds the samples he uses in his songs. This week’s “Day Job” segment features Lindsey Kaghan of the band Salt Lick speaking about her job at a barbershop.
