Steve Earle and more

Both of our artists in this week’s re-airing are prolific in their own right. Joining us for the first time is psychedelic folk-rock songwriter and producer Jonathan Wilson. He’s an amazing musician in his own right (besides touring on his own, he spent two years on the road as part of Roger Waters’ touring band), plus he’s a sought after producer (Connor Oberst, Father John Misty, Dawes and many others have worked with him). And iconic, prolific country Americana singer-songwriter Steve Earle returns to the show (his 9th visit) to showcase his recent tribute album to the legendary Guy Clark. Rounding things out, our eChievement Award story this week features a young man who founded a humanitarian nonprofit organization working to improve sanitation conditions in the developing world.

American Routes 12:00 pm
Santana Speaks: With Celia Cruz, Tito Puente and Los Lobos

Carlos Santana speaks about playing music from the streets of Tijuana to the stage at Woodstock, launching his career in San Francisco, and his hopes for a global society explored on his new album Africa Speaks. We’ll hear from the late Tito Puente, el Rey de los Timbales, who tells about the roots of tropical Latin jazz in Spanish Harlem and how he brought his instrument, the timbales, to the foreground by moving them from the back to the front of the stage. Steve Berlin and Cesar Rosas from Los Lobos talk about their mix of American pop and Mexican traditions, and we remember Celia Cruz, la Reina de Cuba, who we spoke to in 2001 about her musical beginnings in her beloved homeland, Cuba.

We’ll begin with a tribute to Nigerian Tony Allen, who left us in late April- one of the great drummers of the last decades, and the famed originator of Afrobeat with Fela Kuti. Then we start on an aural visit to South America, beginning down South in Argentina, where tango still rules, along with many new dance styles.
