This week’s program is a dedicated to a full hour of the Royal Southern Brotherhood, recorded live at French Quarter Fest 2012. The rock 'n' roll collective is headed by Cyril Neville, Devon Allman, and Mike Zito. Together they fuse elements of New Orleans funk rhythms, southern rock and texas guitar slinging.
Cooped up in Meridian, Mississippi is one of Country music's most historic landmarks, the Jimmie Rodgers Museum. It preserves things near and dear to Jimmie like his faithful traveling suitcase, letters to his family, and one of the world's most valuable guitars-- his original Martin valued over $1 million.
