Robert Johnson. May 8, 1911. Broadcast 48

Today is Robert Johnson’s birthday. It never occurred to me until today that he was only 27 when he died. Memphis native Kat Moore is a writer living in Texas right now and contributed this piece about Robert to Rolling Stone Magazines, Telling Stories In Stereo. Kat found redemption at 27, whereas Robert met his fate at 27, joining the famed 27 Club and giving birth to his mysterious and mythological life. You can follow Kat on Twitter, @inabluefog
