    Sammy Davis Jr.’s financial legacy

    Investigative reporter MATT BIRBECK comes into the studio to talk about his new book, “Deconstructing Sammy: Music, Money, Madness and the Mob,” a look at Sammy Davis Jr.’s life after his death. In addition to his musical legacy, Davis Jr. left behind a legacy of unresolved financial problems. Joining Birkbeck is ALBERT “SONNY” MURRAY JR., a former federal prosecutor who helped restore Sammy Davis Jr’s debt with the IRS.
