Miami Vice: Gangsters of Magic City / Harvey Frommer

1/26/2016


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.
