Sex trafficking wasn't a major concern in the early 1980s, when Beth Jacobs was a teenager. If you were a prostitute, the thinking went, it was your choice.

Jacobs thought that too, right up until she came to on the lot of a dark truck stop one night. She says she had asked a friendly-seeming man for a ride home that afternoon.

Jacobs says he gave her something in an old McDonald's cup — a drug — and as she was waking up the man announced that he was a pimp. Her pimp.

The Boston Citgo sign, all 3,600 square LED feet of which has served as the backdrop to Red Sox games since 1965, is now officially a "pending landmark."

Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí spent much of the 1940s in the U.S., avoiding World War II and its aftermath. He was a well-known fixture on the art scene in Monterey, Calif. — and that's where the largest collection of Dalí's work on the West Coast is now open to the public.

Matt Munisteri On 'Song Travels'

Mar 22, 2013

Matt Munisteri is a guitarist, vocalist and composer with an ear for a bygone era. A masterful and mainly self-trained musician in high demand, he has arranged for and performed with artists including Mark O'Connor, Julian Lage, Catherine Russell and Diana Krall.

Munisteri has been compared to Randy Newman, Mose Allison and Bob Dorough. His love of jazz, swing and Dixieland has led him to rediscover many of the all-but-forgotten musicians of the early 20th century, including American singer-songwriter Willard Robison.

His latest album, Still Runnin' Round in the Wilderness, explores the compositions of Robison, artfully arranged and interpreted by Munisteri. On this episode of Song Travels, Munisteri and host Michael Feinstein share tunes that, while forsaken by the past, are sure to be easy to remember.
