Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel

The morning of August 5, 1962, the world awoke to the shocking news: Marilyn Monroe found dead. The circumstances surrounding her death has become one of the most debated conspiracy theories in history. Was it an accident, or something more? Whom did she call? What really happened that fateful night in her Brentwood home?

Now, for the first time in radio history, host Nina Boski will start to examine the life and death of Marilyn Monroe and give you a firsthand look into the feature film, “Goodnight Marilyn” as it goes into production. The radio show also highlights the star’s life, what really made her “twinkle" so bright, and why she is more popular today than ever. Goodnight Marilyn Radio will also delve into the death of Marilyn as we uncover fact from fiction, separating probable theory from outlandish rumor as we hear from the authors, the investigators and the experts who can shed some light of what really happened to the star that haunting night back in 1962.
