It’s the second week of the spring pledge drive and it’s Easter! We will hear the monks of Keur Moussa in Senegal sing Easter songs in French. Singer Jean Ferrat, who died in March, will sing of spring lilacs and love. The great Piaf sings two songs from a cd offered to listeners who pledge on Bonjour Minnesota. Serge Gainsbourg has two chansons from a gift cd, as well as several new artists from two Putumayo cd’s.
Telephone callers requested More golden oldies! Here they are: Piaf, Maurice Chevalier, Yves Montand, singing songs not often heard. To round out the program, there are Francis Cabrel, Beausoleil (the great Cajun band) and others.
