You all should check out “Back Down the Bayou”

Happy Spring!  I didn’t record last week’s show because it was the pledge drive and I always seem to booger up the sound level when I do a pledge drive.  And because of other complications, I won’t be recording tomorrow’s show either.

So I think this is an excellent time to introduce you to Bill Boelens and his wonderful show “Back Down the Bayou” on Baton Rouge community radio WHYR.  Bill’s show airs on Sundays and features roots music with a distinct Louisiana and Southern flair.

I had the pleasure of meeting Bill on my last trip to New Orleans. We shopped for music at the Louisiana Music Factory and had lunch at the Camellia Grill on Carrolton. Bill’s quite knowledgeable about regional scene and has excellent taste in the music. I get lots of ideas for my show by listening to his.  Here’s a couple of his latest programs.

By the way, its no coincidence that Bill’s show is also on a community radio station. If you’re so inclined, I’d appreciate your financial support of community radio whichever one you listen to in your community. If it happens to my station, KAOS Olympa, here’s the link to pledge.
