Etown 6:00 am
Deer Tick / Garland Jeffreys / Kathleen Hower

This week in eTown, the Providence, Rhode Island-based alternative group Deer Tick share their one-of-a-kind sound. Also with us is the legendary, genre-bending American singer-songwriter Garland Jeffreys, who (by his own account) recorded his first real ?Rock and Roll? record in 1977 with Wild In The Streets and has continued to break new ground musically ever since. All of this, plus a great eChievement Award story about a Pennsylvania woman who saves new, unused medical supplies from ending up in the landfill and then sends them to those that need them in third world countries.

American Routes 12:00 pm
Routes Rock & Cajun Stardom: Boz Scaggs & Jimmy C. Newman

We trace stardom back to its source, traversing the roots and routes that led small town musicians to national fame. Pop icon Boz Scaggs and the late Cajun honky-tonk man Jimmy C. Newman took very different paths to the stage but carried with them the sounds they grew up hearing. Boz Scaggs achieved mainstream success with his own platinum records as well as his work with Steve Miller and Duane Allman. We talk to him about his 6+ years performing on the road and how he came into his own by reconnecting with the blues he heard as a kid in ?Nowhere, Texas.? Then, we remember the late Jimmy C. Newman, who took the sounds of French Louisiana to the Grand Ole Opry and put Cajun music and culture on the map. Son Gary Newman, producer Joel Savoy and musician Kelli Jones tell of his legacy and their tribute album, Farewell, Alligator Man. Plus, we trace Hank Williams' ?Jambalaya? back to its Cajun origins, served up with tunes from Bob Dylan, Bonnie Raitt and Professor Longhair.
