On today's show:

A wide spectrum of Islam on television

Depending on the TV, cable or streaming network you’re watching, you can get a very different picture of what it means to be a Muslim, particularly a Muslim American. There are big differences between news coverage and depictions on scripted shows where, in some cases, their faith is even used for comic purposes. So where do things stand now? John gets some perspective from Lorraine Ali, TV critic at the Los Angeles Times.

What's Satan Got to Do With it?

If you think you know what the Satanic Temple is all about, documentary filmmaker Penny Lane ("The Pain of Others," "Our Nixon") says you probably don't. The biggest misconception, she says, is that members of the Satanic Temple are devil worshippers. In truth, modern Satanism is a non-theistic belief system. Is it a religion? Or an anti-religion? Well, that's where it gets interesting. Lane's new documentary, "Hail Satan?," traces how some media-savvy members of the temple began advocating for freedom of religious expression and the separation of church and state. The Frame's John Horn spoke with Lane at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival where "Hail Satan?" premiered.

Crate diggin' with the 'Indiana Jones of Jazz'

Resonance Records has earned a reputation for unearthing lost jazz recordings. And much of the credit goes to label co-president Zev Feldman -- he’s become known as “the Indiana Jones of jazz.” Feldman’s recent discoveries include recordings by legendary figures such as guitarist Wes Montgomery, saxophonist Eric Dolphy and pianist Bill Evans. The Frame’s Jonathan Shifflett visited him at his studio recently to find out more.
