1/10/2014 Louisiana Rhythms

 

Karl here as your host today. I played a lot of Balfa and Nathan Abshire related Cajun music to start the show. Then switched to some Zydeco with Geno Delafose, Buckwheat and Clifton Chenier. Then I finished up with a little Swamp Pop to highlight the Return of the "Swamp Pop Extravaganza". Yes, we are bringing this fundraiser back to the Eagles on February 22nd after an 18 month hiatus to clean the detritus of our last trip to Holly Beach..........
