Airs Thursday, April 23, at 8 p.m. For lovers of the mandolin, an instrument that first came about nearly 400 years ago, it's hard not to appreciate the many virtuosos that have emerged in the past half century and blended extensive musical styles. Two of the most unique and extraordinary mandolinists in our time are Mike Marshall and Chris Thile, who have been working on and off over the past ten years to create a duo program like no other. In this episode, we listen to a 2014 performance by this duo at the Savannah Music Festival.

Airs Sunday, May 25 at 6 p.m. Roy Orbison cared about two things in life more than anything else, music and family. Often those two combined, but Roy's sons never got the chance to share the stage with their dad. They did find a tape of a song that Roy never finished, and as a family Roy's boys completed the song as his baking band.     In this in-depth look at Roy’s 1989 posthumous comeback album, Mystery Girl, we'll here classic songs (“You Got It,” “She’s a Mystery to Me” and more), plus rare recording sessions, comments from his legendary collaborators, exclusive interviews with Roy’s sons (Wesley, Roy Kelton and Alex), Jeff Lynne and more.

Airs Sunday, May 18 at 6 p.m. I used to say that Bob Wills was the Elvis Presley of Western Swing. He was as charismatic a performer as ever stood on stage according to the people who have reported to me and by looking at his films." - Ray Benson (Asleep at the Wheel).     Imagine walking into a dance hall on a dusty Texas highway back in 1946. The room is packed wall to wall, and on the bandstand is a smiling, hollering fiddler leading 22 musicians who are working the dancers into a frenzy with hit after hit.
