In 1986, Michael Morton was a supermarket manager in Texas and a husband and father. As he says of his family, “I’ve often felt how almost excruciatingly average we were, a chunk out of a demographic study: the house, the yard, the kid, the car. We had everything but the picket fence. It was good.”
Michael Morton’s life, however, took a horrific turn that same year: his wife was murdered in their bed, and he was convicted of that murder, despite any evidence pointing to his guilt and tremendous evidence showing his innocence.
After spending nearly 25 years in prison for the murder of his wife, Morton was released on October 4, 2011, and officially exonerated in December 2011. DNA evidence implicated another man, who has also been tied to a similar Texas murder that occurred two years after the murder of Morton’s wife.
We will talk to Michael about his book ''Getting Life '' .

Hi everybody it"s Monday night A start of the first full week of shows for one of my favorite months of the year July. I just love sumertime so very very much. I guess being raised on a farm as a young man made these months really stick out in one"s mind I suppose. The fresh veggies starting to really come in. The hay mowing going on in our hay fields.I loved the smell of the fresh cut hay. I can still see that in my memory today. I miss my folks and those times very badly. It's a shame that even as a man all grown up that you can never go back to those simpler times when you felt so free. I have a good show for all thats joined us tonight. we explore pop music of the decade that we are now living in I hope you like what your gonna listen to. I"m not as familier with these songs as I am the others.
