Folk Oasis [Fill-in] - "Spice must flow, spice must flow" (2008 April 22)

8:00am - 10:01am

Val's in Louisiana now, so I'm filling in for with more roots, folk and other forms of traditional music...old and new, earnest and freaky. Happy earth day! The earth was born 39 years ago -- don't dispute me, I read it on Wikipedia!

Don't you wish you were in New Orleans? I wish you were. Or me.

You can read along with the songs as they play. You'll know it's time to turn the page when you hear the monkeys scream.
