Airs Friday, January 29, at 9 p.m. This week we open with a blues inspired tribute remembering Jerry Beach featuring music by Buddy Flett, Albert King, Government Mule, the Allman Brothers, and Jerry Beach. Then in our concert hour we visit with BeauSoleil avec Michael Doucet - Live at Southwest Stages and this week in our final hour we'll lament the absence of angels.

Airs Friday, December 19 at 9:00 p.m.  Everyone is invited to laissez les bons temps rouler, let the good times roll! Each holiday season, join singer-songwriter Monty Brown for A Cajun Christmas. Brown offers up spicy reminiscences from some of the bayou folk, and draws out more poignant memories from others. But mostly it's the music that tells the story. You'll find yourself two-steppin' and waltzin' to "Joyeux Noël" as swamp fiddles, accordions, and singers cook up a holiday gumbo, a delicious feast for the spirit and the ears!

Airs Saturday, December 21 at 7:00 p.m.  
Repeat Broadcast on Thursday, December 26 at 8 p.m.

The program features internationally known and locally prized music-makers. Some of the songs are familiar, like "Vive le vent" ("Jingle Bells") and the traditional French "Il est né." Artists include fiddler Michael Doucet, accordionist Paul Daigle and Cajun Gold, and Harrison Fontenot. These Cajun revelers' mirth is positively infectious, and their gift, compelling.
