Art Of The Song 7:00 am

Our guest this week on Art of the Song is Finnish singer/songwriter Janita. As a teenager she broke into the mainstream in Finland, and became a fixture on radio, television, and as a touring artist. She moved to the US at age 17 to continue her career. Janita learned to sing before she could talk, and began playing electric piano at age three. She started writing her own songs on piano at age four, and often performed and danced with the encouragement of family and her mother. While she was never formally trained in singing, she seriously studied both classical piano and ballet

American Routes 12:00 pm
American Routes Live! The Meters, Drive-By Truckers, and Baton Rouge Blues Festival

Time for some "Fire on the Bayou" at a rare reunion of New Orleans' funk jam band and studio wizards, The Meters -- Art Neville, keyboards; Leo Nocentelli, guitar; Zigaboo Modeliste, drums; and George Porter Jr., bass -- on stage at the Howlin' Wolf club. Then Drive-By Truckers, fronted by songmen/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, bring their poetic and critical style of Southern rock a la Muscle Shoals, Alabama to New Orleans' historic Civic Theatre. Finally we roll 80 miles upriver to the Baton Rouge Blues Festival, featuring dapper Mississippian Little Freddie King; Louisiana swamp blues guitarist Lil Buck Sinegal; Creole zydeco accordionist Jeffery Broussard; and Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens from New York. Turn on, tune in and chill out!
