RADIO // Impossible MusicGulf Coast Music Special
Hosted by David Weinstein
Originally aired 9/12/05
David Weinstein and guest Tim Spelios spin a survey of Gulf Coast music assembled the week after 2005's Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. The impacting aftermath of Katrina got everybody thinking about their affections for New Orleans, as well as the city's important cultural contributions. There is a compelling and very readable history of the city's music on a myriad of websites. Read about the Mardi Gras Mambo, James Carter and the prisoners and the tragedy of Amédé Ardoin, an event that is remembered differently by varying people. Selected for this show are tracks by Amédé Ardoin, Napolian Strickland, Dixie Cups, Dennis McGee, Professor Longhair, Louis Armstrong Hot Five, Allen Toussaint and many many more!
