Bath Time!

Bath Time with Heavy Friends! Grab your towel and epsom salts and soothe your body and mind while we commemorate Jean Paul Marat...and, later, the birthdays of free jazz genius Albert Ayler, guitar innovator Roger McGuinn, and Frida Kahlo...

commemorating the death of Jean Paul Marat, murdered in his tub on this date in 1793 at the hands of Charlotte Corday - with songs reflective of epsom salts, scrubbing brushes, and washcloths, items more appropriate to the bath than a knife through the clavicle.
