Note about streaming, downloading:

We could not download the program last week and station management confirmed that the podcast function was inoperative again, so apologies to any who could not stream or download last week’s show.  It appears that the podcast function has been repaired. In the next few months, CFMU will have a new website and you should not experience these recently manifest problems listening to CFMU programming.

Another general program next week. No feature. We have more loose ends to tie. We have decided to postpone our repeat of the John Lomax Southern Journey feature and reschedule for August 27th, last Tuesday of the summer.


For anyone interested in Zydeco music after our special on Cajun and Zydeco, two weeks ago, there is a pretty comprehensive full-length study of the music by Michael Tisserand–The Kingdom of Zydeco (Avon, 1998).
