EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH BEAT

FROM THE SHOW: MAKING NEW ORLEANS MUSIC

From the show "Making New Orleans Music" originally aired on April 21st, 2010

FROM THE SHOW: DAVID AMRAM & MARCUS ROBERTS

For almost 40 years, Philadelphia-born David Amram has ignored musical genres, moving between classical, Latin jazz, film and folk music. The multi-Instrumentalist and free spirit recorded with Lionel Hampton and joined the Mingus Big Band and later was signed as composer-in-residence with the New York Philharmonic. Amram may be best known for his title track from the 1959 beat film narrated by Jack Kerouac, Pull My Daisy.

FROM THE SHOW: STREETBEATS

The man behind the beats, Earl Palmer, shares stories about tap dancing as kid in New Orleans, his travels on the vaudeville circuit and his work creating the New Orleans sound with Fats Domino and Little Richard.

ROCKIN' BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN: TO RUSSIA WITH LOVE

During the Cold War, the U.S. State Department started sending jazz musicians overseas with the tactical aim of using their hot licks to thaw relations with Eastern Bloc countries. Jazz great Dave Brubeck recalls how Louis Armstrong, a.k.a. "Ambassador Satch," won international hearts and minds with his trumpet. Band member Arvell Shaw saw Armstrong literally disarm Russian guards in East Berlin. Meanwhile, fear of nuclear war with the Soviets infiltrated American popular consciousness resulting in gospel, bluegrass and pop odes to and protests against atomic weapons. In the Sixties, the airwaves were dominated by rock'n'roll, which pirate radio stations and the Armed Forces Network piped across the Iron Curtain. AFN soldier/deejay Rik De Lisle tells about spinning tunes that helped destabilize the Berlin Wall, and Hungarian diplomat/rock guitarist Andras Simonyi and Russian musician Stas Namin talk about life in the Soviet sphere and the cultural revolution sparked by the Beatles, Traffic and Jimi Hendrix.

ROCKIN' THE BLUES WITH SONNY BURGESS & SNOOKS EAGLIN

Tune in and rock the blues with two guitar men who do it with great authority. First up is Arkansas wild man and original Sun Records rockabilly Sonny Burgess who tore it up, playing his hits "We Wanna Boogie," "Red-Headed Woman" and others well into his eighties, before passing away last month. And hear a live set from the late great New Orleans bluesman and human jukebox Snooks Eaglin, recorded in 2007 at his home base, the famous Rock 'N' Bowl nightclub, where one can do either of those, or both, at the same time. Feel the beat in blues, jazz, Western swing and more with a music mix designed to rock your blues away.

SUN, SURF AND SOUL: SEA BREEZE BEACH AND SAN DIEGO SURFERS

It's summertime, and the living is easy on American Routes, where we've got cool tunes from Miles Davis, Ray Charles, Martha and the Vandellas, and the Beach Boys to help you beat that summer heat. We'll hear memories of Sea Breeze, NC, a historically Black resort community that was an early site of integration in the Jim Crow South... And visit with some surfers at Mission Beach, San Diego.

TIMEKEEPERS: THE ART OF DRUMMING WITH JM VAN EATON, ZIGABOO MODELISTE, TITO PUENTE, BEN RILEY AND SHANNON POWELL

This week on American Routes, we're keeping the beat with drummers and rhythm makers across the genres: everyone from Sun Records' Rockabilly drummer JM Van Eaton, to jazz percussionist Ben Riley, who had to keep up with the unconventional rhythms of Thelonious Monk. In between, we listen live in-studio to New Orleans' King of Treme, Shannon Powell, whose music takes us from the church to the streets and beyond.

And hear a live set from the late great New Orleans bluesman and human jukebox Snooks Eaglin, recorded in 2007 at his home base, the famous Rock 'N' Bowl nightclub, where one can do either of those, or both, at the same time.

THE FUNK SOUL UNIVERSE: GALACTIC AND JOE BATAAN

It's an exploration of the funk universe on American Routes. New York City's pioneer of Afro-Latin Soul, Joe Bataan, tells us about his boogaloo beginnings, melding latin beats with soulful sounds and his move toward "salsoul" and rap. And a conversation with Stanton Moore and Ben Ellman from New Orleans' Galactic about their love of all things funky from the Crescent City and beyond.

CROSSOVER DREAMS: LATIN MUSIC IN AMERICA

We'll sample the sabor latino in American music. Join us for conversation with Los Lobos on their mix of American pop and Mexican traditions.

Then, we'll sit in with pianist and bandleader Oscar Hernandez of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra for some Nuyorican beats and salsa moves. Plus a special performance by San Antonio's queen of the conjunto accordion, Eva Ybarra.

KINGS OF THE ROAD: FROM RAMBLIN' JACK TO KEROUAC

Plus, historian and author Douglas Brinkley joins us to speak on travel as muse for beat author Jack Kerouac and others.

EASTER WITH DONALD HARRISON, JR. AND HOLMES BROTHERS

Easter weekend is a time for reflection and family, and our guests certainly fit the bill. Donald Harrison, Jr. is a saxophone player and New Orleans native now based in New York. Harrison's ties to New Orleans run deep, musically and culturally. His work has long echoed strains of Mardi Gras Indian chants and street beats - not surprisingly as his late father was Big Chief of the Guardians of the Flame tribe, a position Donald Jr. has since assumed. Wendell and Sherman Holmes, plus longtime friend Popsy Dixon make up the Holmes Brothers, a vocal group best known for putting their personal stamp on blues, gospel, country, pop and more. The brothers join us to talk about the transition from Christ Church, Virginia to New York and back again to home and family.

AMERICA'S HIPPIE HERITAGE

Tune in and turn on to our nation's fringe heritage.

We're joined by Maria Muldaur who recalls making jug-band music in the West Village in the '60s. Also, we speak with bass player Jack Casady, a founding member of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna.

BO DIDDLEY / TONY JOE WHITE

On the next American Routes as the weather warms up we treat you to two very cool guests. Mississippi-born and Chicago-bred legend Bo Diddley talks about his songs "I'm a Man," "Who Do You Love," and that signature Bo Diddley beat. Tony Joe White comes up from the swamps to play an acoustic version of "Polk Salad Annie," among other tunes. Plus, a refreshing visit to a local New Orleans favorite, Hansen's Sno Bliz, servin' up the best sno-cones you've ever tasted.

DELTA DAILY LIFE

A musical return to that fount of styles called the blues as we take a tour of the Mississippi Delta, and also visit kinfolk in Memphis, Chicago, and Oakland. We'll hear about blues roots and routes in conversations with singer Little Milton, Delta Deejay Early Wright -- famous for his "snake alerts" -- and at a Clarksdale, Mississippi, barbershop where stropping the razor to a beat is an art form.

STREETBEATS

We got the beat. From second line rhythms and tap dance in the street, to funk in the studio and the cowbell on concert stage, rhythm's something we all have. This week, check out the beats of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Cuban bandleader Cachao and tap-dancer Savoin Glover. Plus drummer Earl Palmer tells us about playing with Little Richard and Fats Domino. We'll dig into the clave rhythm with Tom McDermott, and Elvis' man in the pocket DJ Fontana keeps the beat with American Routes.

SPRING

New season, new music in the air! In addition to a lively spring mix of music, we'll bring you the sounds of the birds in Belize, the bees in urban New Orleans... and the man who sings like a frog. New Orleans R&B star Clarence "Frogman" Henry tells us about his amphibious voice, his collection of frogs, and hanging out with the Beatles on tour in '64.

CHRISTMAS 2002

Christmas comes but once a year! American Routes digs into a bag of sound that's been a year in the filling to bring you Christmas and seasonal music of the up, down, and off-beat variety we hope you've come to count on from (not) Saint Nick and the crew. Plus Chuck Siler, a museum curator and visual artist, tells us about his experience as a black Santa in 1968. Keep a cool Yule.

BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA & ULALI

Beat the heat with the gospel shouts of the Blind Boys of Alabama! The five octogenarian singers talk about the deep faith that keeps the music going. Plus the unique harmonies of Native American trio Ulali, and a tribute to the late zydeco accordionist Boozoo Chavis.
