I left some music in my car, so alas no Irma Thomas, Bobby Charles, Cookie & the Cupcakes or Jimmy Donley, but there'll be plenty more weeks to show them off. This show has got a little bit of everything from La.: Blues, Soul, R&B, SwampPop, Cajun and Country. Note: The Podcast unfortunately cuts off before the last 3 cuts.
