Mark Silverman, is a Former Winter Hill Gangster and Boston Mafia member that was rising through the ranks of the Irish Winter Hill Gang while being recruited by both warring factions of the Patriarca family. His account is the first-ever inside glimpse into what went on at the street level, why people were killed, and what the stakes were.

Silverman grew up in the shadow of Raymond Patriarca and James (Whitey) Bulger, bosses of Boston’s most infamous crime families. With a Jewish last name, his opportunities should have been limited in Boston’s Irish/Italian underworld, but he moved up quickly, gaining acceptance across the board. His book ROGUE MOBSTER is a firsthand account of the violent Boston mob wars of the 1990s, when bodies were piling up across New England and Mark Silverman was walking a tightrope between Winter Hill and the Mafia.

Porch Fire is a bluegrass jam fusion band that is based out of Carbondale, Illinois. The band was formed in the summer of 2015. Porch Fire aims to smoothly combine several different styles of music to create their own unique sound. Although the band uses bluegrass instrumentation, they aim to mix bluegrass with jam music, reggae, rock, blues, jazz, americana, and psychedelic space sounds. For Porch Fire there is no box to contain what you will expect to hear, constantly keeping the audience on their toes !!

The trainwreck leaves the station at 8 pm CST / 9 pm EST !! Don't miss it !!
