World Cafe host David Dye welcomes soul and R&B singer, Charles Bradley, who launched his recording career two years ago at age 63. Before that, he had a long journey moving all around the country doing odd jobs, later taking work as a James Brown impersonator in Brooklyn, where he was finally discovered. "The Screaming Eagle of Soul," as he's become known, performs selections from his new album Victim of Love today, and we'll hear his fascinating story.
