Charles Farrell : Musician, Former Boxing Promoter

Charles Farrell was born to a sophisticated middle class family in Boston, but at age 12, he left home and came of age on the street, joining “low-life culture”, the underbelly of boxing, and avant-garde piano playing.

Special thanks to Karen Duffin. This episode is a co-production with the fantastic podcast: Everything is Stories.

EXTRAS:
Charles is currently working on his memoir, “Lowlife”, and a TV series called “Fixed and Forgotten” with Tony Roman.
