The 1984 murder of one of Motown’s biggest stars – at the hands of his abusive, alcoholic, cross-dressing Pentecostal-preacher father – stunned the industry. But despite the media frenzy, almost no justice was served…

In this episode we look at Gaye’s life story, drawing a line from his early traumas to the whirlwind of violence, drugs and sex that seemed to follow him everywhere.

And to tell the whole story, we’re joined this week by Jake Brennan – host of the most-downloaded music podcast EVER: Disgraceland – who dropped in to give us all the essential context behind one of the most notorious crimes in musical history.
