Miami Vice: Gangsters of Magic City / Harvey Frommer


Returning guest Harvey Frommer discusses the dark and dirty side of Miami reliving the reign of gangster Meyer Lansky and the Cocaine Cowboys era. We show how Miami as a microcosm of American history in the last 150 years discussed in Harvey's latest book "It Happened in Miami, the Magic City: An Oral History." We’ll also revisit the dramatic days of World War II, the post–war glamour of the Frank Sinatra, and how Muhammad Ali made himself into the champion - all by way of Miami.
