He had a slew of international hits in the 1960's and 70's, including "If You Could Read My Mind," "Sundown" and The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald."  His songs were also performed by some of the biggest stars of that time, including Jerry Lee Lewis, The Grateful Dead, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and Barbra Streisand. Today, at 84 years old, Gordon Lightfoot is still writing and performing. He is as charming a raconteur as you might expect, given the nature of the songs he writes, and talks here about his childhood in a small town in Ontario, and about his path to the top of the music industry.  He describes the quirks of his songwriting process, and explains why he changed the words of "Edmund Fitzgerald" after he recorded it.

The Griffon, a 17th-century barque, is one of the greatest mysteries of the Great Lakes. She went missing in Lake Michigan in 1679 with a crew of six. The final voyage of the Edmund Fitzgerald began November 9, 1975 at the Burlington Northern Railroad Dock No.1, Superior, Wisconsin. The SS Carl D. Bradley, built in 1927 and considered the “Queen of the Lakes” sank in 1957 in Lake Michigan, killing 33 of the 35 crew members. The Great Lakes bulk freighter SS John B Cowle sank in 1909 after a freak collision with another ship killing 14 of the 24 crew members aboard. It has been estimated there are 25,000 shipwrecks in the Great Lakes! Join the September episode of Great Lakes Chronicles: Tales from the Great Lakes as we investigate the mysteries and lore with our guest Bruce Lynn, Executive Director of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum.

Did a spirit of the Edmund Fitzgerald make contact with the ghost hunting team at a shipwreck museum? As a young man, Brad Blair and his friends would wander the back roads of Michigan's upper peninsula seeking out scares and thrills in old abandoned farmhouses. Brad, along with his friends would enter the rickety properties with Ouija board in tow and attempt to make contact with spirits. Sometimes having success, other times not. Years after these teenage adventures, Brad decided to take his love of ghost hunting to a more serious and professional level and formed the “Uppers”, or the Upper Peninsula Paranormal Research Society. With this group, Brad would soon uncover many very real and untold ghost stories of the desolate land known as Michigan's upper peninsula. PART 2 - AVAILABLE TO GRAVE KEEPERS ONLY - LISTEN HERE In part two of our interview, available only to Grave Keepers, we discuss: Did Brad and his ghost-hunting crew make contact the Ghost of Captain Townsend at the haunted lighthouse? What happened when the ghost hunting crew lit and smoked cigars in honor of the deceased captain? Why is it that lighthouses commonly seem to be such haunted locations? What kinds of spirits live along the area known as “Shipwreck Point” in upper Michigan? Did a spirit of the Edmund Fitzgerald make contact with the ghost hunting team at a shipwreck museum? Are there more ghosts in desolate areas like upper Michigan than more densely populated areas, or are they just more evident because of the quiet?  As a Grave Keeper, for $5 per month you will get: Access to every episode of our show, AD-FREE – MONTHS BEFORE THEY GO PUBLIC.

Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin

It's Alec's turn to pick one of his most beloved episodes in the summer archive series. This week, we feature one of his favorite musicians, Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot, from their 2013 conversation. Over the course of a career that has lasted more than half a century, Lightfoot has achieved global stardom and exceptional influence. Bob Dylan's a fan—he's said, “I can't think of any [Lightfoot songs] I don't like.” These songs—“Beautiful,” “Sundown,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” and many others—have been treasured by generations of popular musicians and listeners around the world. But Gordon Lightfoot was just one of many aspirants who moved to Toronto in the early 1960s to try their hand in the burgeoning folk music scene there. Lightfoot tells Alec about fitting a feeling to a melody, why he owes his first hit record to an exec's girlfriend, and how he wrote "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by pulling lines straight from the newspaper.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

From the cache! Until an all-new episode premiers this October, please enjoy this recast on the legendary Edmund Fitzgerald that originally aired in 2020. In 1975 the gales of November billowed out a monster storm over the waters of Lake Superior, and the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald met it head on. By the time the sky cleared, the crew and their ship had become an inseparable part of the history and lore of the Great Lakes. In this very special episode of the History Cache, we uncover the history behind the shipwreck, try and understand what happened the night it disappeared, and hear some of the haunting audio of the search captured through Coat Guard transmissions on that fateful night. This is the story of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

A Grammy-Nominated Singer Performs and Explores Music's Deep Power Over Us

In times of deep sorrow or joy, humans have always turned to music. Archaeologists have found evidence of instruments among very early civilizations. Spiritual communities have centered on music for centuries. We teach our children their ABCs and how to brush their teeth with songs. We dance out our feelings and cry along with sad tunes. What is it about music that enables it to work so powerfully on our bodies, minds and emotions?That is one of the core animating questions of this conversation with Allison Russell. Russell is a Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter whose debut album, “Outside Child,” was named one of the best albums of 2021 by critics at NPR and The Times.Russell has played in bands including Birds of Chicago and Our Native Daughters, traversing folk, rock 'n' roll, Celtic music, the blues and other genres. But alongside her powerhouse vocals and gorgeous melodies, Russell infuses a deep scholarly curiosity into her songs — not just about the nature and power of music, but also what it can teach listeners about our world.Digging into archives and family history, she explores themes like generational trauma, our relationships to diaspora and migration and how music can build empathic bridges between us in times of deep division. But above all, her songs testify to the sheer human capacity for resilience: our capacity to transcend our darkest times if we hold on, reach out to one another and seek out art that helps console.In this episode, Russell performs four songs with a full band, so listeners can enjoy her infectious art. And then we use those songs as jumping-off points to explore the deeper ideas embedded in her music: why we fall into melodies so soon after our births; how music moves us differently from how books or speeches do; how sound can help regulate our emotions, slow our breathing and rewire our neural networks; how Russell's melodies and vocal performances come together in her mind; why songs can at times be more persuasive than nonfiction; why our unwillingness to divulge painful secrets goes back to the Victorian era; how generational trauma like the Middle Passage connects to personal trauma in the present; how Russell structures her songs to help people transcend profound pain; what message Russell would send to people who are struggling and much more.This episode contains references to sexual abuse.Mentioned:“The Transmogrification of Trauma into Art” by Allison Russell“Barley” by Birds of Chicago“Real Midnight” by Birds of Chicago“Songs of Our Native Daughters” by Our Native Daughters“The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” by Gordon Lightfoot“Take Em Away” by Old Crow Medicine Show“The Art of Disappearance” by Hanif AbdurraqibMusic and Book Recommendations:The Bone People by Keri HulmeA Fortune for Your Disaster by Hanif AbdurraqibBreaking the Thermometer by Leyla McCallaCarry Me Home by Mavis Staples and Levon HelmThis episode was guest hosted by Annie Galvin, the associate producer of “The Ezra Klein Show.” Galvin has covered books and music for almost a decade and hosted a season of “Public Books 101,” a public-scholarship podcast she co-created.Thoughts?

Shipwrecked and Rescued Larry Jorgensen https://shipwreckedandrescued.com/ ()Growing up in the 1970's in Marysville, Michigan, I used to watch the lake freighters travel up and down the St. Clair River all of the time. I remember one of the most fascinating ships to spot was the “Edmund Fitzgerald” at over 1000 feet in length.  It was immortalized by the song, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” written by Gordon Lightfoot, after it encountered a severe Lake Superior winter storm in November 1975. My own personal experience of how fast a storm can roll in from Lake Superior occurred Mothers Day in 1973. Our family drove almost 12 hours up to property we owned on Lake Bailey in the Keweenaw Peninsula. It was spring and the weather was beautiful. But we awoke the next morning to two feet of snow and bitter cold! And NOBODY had cold weather clothing!  We were wearing shorts, T-shirts and flip flops!  Needless to say, we loaded up the car and headed home! I'm saying all this because our guest today has written a book titled, https://shipwreckedandrescued.com (“Shipwrecked and Rescued, Cars and Crew.”) It is about a famous event in Michigan history. A story of another shipping disaster on Lake Superior. Just so  you know, there have been over 10,000 ship wrecks in the Great Lakes, about 500 or more in Lake Superior and many of them still remain undiscovered due to the depth of the Lake. Buthttps://shipwreckedandrescued.com ( “Shipwrecked and Rescued, Cars and Crew”)  is about a wreck that had a good ending. A rescue. Not just a rescue of the crew, but also the cargo. A tragedy that turned to victory. But it was not an easy feat to achieve. Larry Jorgensen has been fascinated by the wreck of the ship called, “The City of Bangor.” This was not just a ship wreck. This was a double rescue success!  What is a double rescue success? Well, instead of me telling you about it, let's welcome to the program historian and author, Larry Jorgensen! Larry, thank you for taking the time to join us today! Larry, let's jump into the book. What first caught your attention about the wreck of the “City of  Bangor” and why? This wreck occurred before there was, truly, any significant use of radio, radar and things like that which we take for granted today, correct? Tell us about this wreck and what made the rescue so difficult and, at the same time, so significant… The crew was taken in by a generous family that took care of them during the winter. A local businessman, basically, “invented” the snowmobile” and it was successfully used in the rescue? Once the crew was safe, then came the second part of the rescue, correct? Tell us about that aspect of the rescue? It took the highway department three weeks to plow the road 40 miles to get the cars back from Copper Harbor. I just have to ask, do you speak “Yoopernese?” For those that don't understand, “Yoopernese” is the dialect, accent or whatever you want to call of northern Michiganders. It sounds something like, “yah, you dalk like dis when you live der, eh?” Growing up in the thumb area of Michigan, I was referred to as a “Troll” (that's what Yoopers call people from the lower peninsula because we live “under the bridge” – referring to, of course, the Mackinaw Bridge). Anyway, I could talk for hours about the UP (for those that don't know, that means the “Upper Peninsula”). Larry, this is awesome. I truly appreciate you sharing this story with us. How can someone obtain their own copy of https://shipwreckedandrescued.com (“Shipwrecked and Rescued, Cars and Crew?”)  Is it on Amazon? If someone wanted to get in touch with you, maybe to ask a question or do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you? I'll put links to all of this down in the show notes below. CONTACT INFORMATION: https://shipwreckedandrescued.com/ ()   Website:  https://shipwreckedandrescued.com/...

July 2, 2022 Whitefish Point, near the eastern end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is a critical turning point for maritime traffic entering Lake Superior. The point marks the eastern end of a notorious 80-mile stretch of shoreline that's known as Lake Superior's Shipwreck Coast. Of 550 known major shipwrecks in the vicinity, at least 200 have been near Whitefish Point. Probably the most famous was the 1975 loss of the steamer Edmund Fitzgerald and its crew of 29, just 17 miles north-northwest of Whitefish Point. Whitefish Point Light Station, Michigan.
