In this bonus episode, I talk about Blind Willie Johnson's gospel/blues masterpiece 'Dark Was The Night', a nearly wordless song that was included on the legendary golden record included aboard the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space probes.

This episode evolved from a discussion I had with Charlie McCarron, of the excellent Composer Quest podcast.

You can hear the entire recording of 'Dark Was The Night' at
