Divine, in John Waters' 1972 film Pink Flamingos.

Erik Deatherage, host of WTMD's Morning Show, joins World Cafe for today's Sense Of Place to play songs by some of Baltimore's best musicians. With a tip of the hat to director John Waters, he starts with Divine's "Born To Be Cheap," then plays a song by the late Mama Cass and more in an eclectic set that touches on the city's diverse musical history.
