Night Train To Nashville

It?s impossible to imagine ? even for the historians and curators who researched the Night Train To Nashville exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum ? the accumulated experience of the artists who graced our stage Wednesday night. Between them were hundreds and hundreds of life years full of roads, crowds, hotels, shacks, joints, clubs, drinks, dalliances, disappointments and delights. We basked in the company and the artistry of more than a dozen senior performers whose lives could each be a novel, full of muscles and scars, families and friendships, ecstasy and discrimination. The show, thank heaven, didn?t lapse into that stilted terrain of a ?tribute? to something passing away. It was as vital a display of artistry as we?ve ever seen. It provoked standing ovations more efficiently than Kim Jong-un?s dreams. It overflowed its schedule and spawned its own unexpected encore, when soul classic ?Sunny? segued into a jubilant cover of new pop/R&B hit ?Happy.? The blues were banished. Our room had no roof. Our night of Night Train, ambitious and long in the planning, was even bigger and more fulfilling than we?d hoped. This collaboration with the Country Music Hall of Fame proved rewarding and entertaining. The artists include Robert Knight singing "Everlasting Love," Clifford Curry, Charles Walker, Jimmy Church, Marion James. Among the best were sets by the McCrary Sisters and The Fairfield Four.

Art Of The Song 7:00 am
Bill Morrissey

this week on Art of the Song we revisit a 2005 interview with the late Bill Morrissey. John and I were visiting Tamworth, New Hampshire, coincidentally on the third anniversary of Bill?s passing. Since we were staying about a mile from his gravesite we decided to visit. Then the next evening we went to hear Cormac McCarthy, a friend and former music partner of Bill?s. There, we had the pleasure of meeting Bill?s mother and brother, who had come to remember Bill. Today, we?re pleased to honor the legacy of Bill Morrissey. In the second half of the show we?ll hear from Mark Erelli with his tribute to Bill Morrissey, Milltowns, for the Standing ?O? Spotligh

American Routes 12:00 pm
Dr. Lonnie Smith & Terrance Simien: Keys and Squeeze

from the heart of French Louisiana to the streets of New York, American Routes is mixing it up this week with two giants of their genres. We visit with jazz great Dr. Lonnie Smith, whose mastery of the music is synonymous with his ever-present Hammond B3 organ. We drop down deep in the pocket with Lonnie, and get keyed in to the past and present of soul and jazz. And out on the Cajun and Creole prairies we drop in on zydeco accordionist and Grammy award winner Terrance Simien. Plus jazz, blues and country tunes from keyboard masters of all kinds
