About this program

What's it like to be Stalin's favourite piano player? Or a Trans woman, belting out soul classics on mid sixties Toronto stages? Or an exiled young Angolan athlete, fighting Portuguese colonial rule in your home country, who happens to have a golden voice? The Alternative History looks at these forgotten stories and more, exploring the points at which music meets revolution. 
Hosted by Charlie Lewis
