Airs Friday, November 4, at 9 p.m. This week we'll open with a tribute to Guy Clarke titled "You Should Know Guy Clarke," and we'll follow with Ten For Glenn, a remembrance of Glenn Fry and then we'll close the program by taking the long way home with music by Daniel Lanois, Robbie Robertson, Keith Bear, The Damnations, Issa Bagayogo, The Cowboy Junkies, and Rose Polenzani.

Airs Friday, October 25 at 10 p.m.  For this hour-long special, The Band co-founder and songwriter Robbie Robertson sits down with host Mike Etchart for a candid, insightful and revealing conversation on the behind-the-scenes history and dynamics of the group, and the inspiration and stories of some of their best known songs, like "The Weight", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" and many others that are interspersed throughout the program. Robbie also discusses the original influences of The Band and their music, and why their sound continues to influence contemporary groups like The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons.  Before there was "Americana".......there was The Band.
