Notes
Research for this story was largely culled from contemporary newspaper accounts. Check back for a list.

Music
* We start off (and end) with You by Nils Frahm.
* We’ve got Krolock on the Sledge from Komeda’s great, great score to The Fearless Vampire Hunters.
* Jett Rink Theme from Dimitri Tiomkin’s score to Giant.
* A little loop of Bandshell, from Thomas Newman’s Little Children score.
* And Opening, the vibes pieces, by Nathan Bartlett (making a return appearance).
* Oh! And Meet the Neighbors from Marcelo Zarvo’s score to the lovely, Please Give. Which has become the go to soundtrack for “Some borderline scam artist has a crazy idea,” here on the Memory Palace.

    Wonderfully presented story/history with additional thoughts that fill in the gaps we can never know about, but love to speculate about.

    I’ve kept Memory Palace to myself but am sharing this episode with friends who love fiction.
