American Routes 12:00 pm
Katrina: 10 Years After the Flood

How has New Orleans fared in the decade since the levee breaks in the wake of Hurricane Katrina? Trying to answer the question, we listen back to the music and musicians who helped the city's culture to stay afloat, including Allen Toussaint and Irma Thomas. Also scenes from the Superdome roof, where worker's repaired of a 9.7 acre hole, and Cajun musicians Michael and David Doucet on a 100 years of hurricanes. Finally humorist Harry Shearer and Creole bandleader Deacon John talk today about their hopes for New Orleans tomorrow, as the landscape of culture and economy changes

Traditional Folk 9:00 pm
Waylon Jennings / Western Swing

learn what famous word was coined from the traditional ?Green Grows the Laurel? back in the 1800?s... The funniest ?Hog-Eyed Man? ever... the theme of our ?Candidate for the Worst Country Song of All Time? at 10PM is ?Male Chauvinist Pig?, a common target in 20th century hillbilly music. We?ll hear my favorite Waylon Jennings song, and an extra lot of 1920?s and 1930?s vintage Western Swing?.
