Few things in life are as timeless as the music of The Beach Boys. They had a magical combination of soaring harmonies and an unepected level of technical sophistication coupled with the constantly-evolving talents of their once-undisputed leader Brian Wilson.

This week, we'll tackle a true rags to riches story: Charles Ponzi. While his specific exploits are a lot less remembered than his name, his plucky, can-do attitude in the face of overhwhelming odds gave inspiration to dozens of upstarts with names like Bernie Madoff, Nicholas Cosmo, and Charles Keating.
