Tragedy fell on the small town of West Memphis, Arkansas in 1993 when three young boys were gruesomely murdered. What followed became a different kind of tragedy, as three young men were sent to prison for 18 years to pay for a crime that they didn’t commit. The documentary West of Memphis tells the story of the long struggle to prove their innocence.
In this one-hour radio special, you’ll hear highlights from the film and its soundtrack including Marilyn Manson, Citizen Cope, and Nick Cave. Plus, you’ll hear from Damien Echols – one of the West Memphis Three – and his wife Lorri Davis, as well as from musicians and supporters Eddie Vedder, Henry Rollins, Natalie Maines, and Johnny Depp.
