This week's show explores the connection between 1950's Rock and Roll and it's influence on today's local musicians. We take you down in the far side of the Bywater neighborhood, to a windowless bar known as BJ's Lounge where on Monday nights, you can find King James and the Special Men reviving the sound of ol' New Orleans rock and roll. While you're dancin' to their sweet sounds and covers of Roy Brown your nose buds will take you straight to the side of the band where homemade red beans are waiting to be served.
In the second half, we take a closer look at this Monday night tradition and hear from lead singer Jimmy Horn about what makes his red beans so special. We also hear from Southern Rock troubadour Grayson Capps and the Lost Cause Minstrels on a recording live at French Quarter Fest 2012.
