Ron Free was a jazz drummer in New York in the late 50s. Ron nearly destroyed himself with drugs, dropped out and disappeared. Now he's back, performing magic with his sticks again.

All musician Matt Arbogast knew about his grandfather, Paul Arbogast, was that Paul died as a young man after serving in World War II, and that his grandmother, Julia, never remarried. Then Matt came into possession of letters Paul had written to Julia between 1943 and 1945. Matt was electrified with the idea of making an album based on the letters. Also on the show: a 94 year-old's run for U.S. Senate.
