🎧 The Story Of Fats Domino’s ‘Ain’t That A Shame’ | NPR

Listened to The Story Of Fats Domino's 'Ain't That A Shame' from NPR.org | All Things Considered

Somehow I was expecting a lot more from this series. Just as it seemed to be getting going, it was cut short. Half of the episode is the song itself, so prepare yourself when it kicks in.

h/t to Kevin Smokler and Jeremy Cherfas for uncovering this for me on Huffduffer.com
