John Rankin shares the story of his first guitar and developing his piano-like approach to the instrument. You can catch him most Tuesday nights at the Columns Hotel on Saint Charles Avenue. For those wondering what to do on Wednesday nights, Big Sam stops by to talk about Wednesdays On the Point, a free weekly music series running all summer in Algiers Point.
Then, the charming and inimitable pianist Bob Andrews expresses his love for New Orleans, his home for close to 20 years. And finally, host and producer George Ingmire offers some heartfelt food for thought about the oil crisis in the Gulf and what listeners can do to make a difference in the recovery.
