XHM #31 - "And they'll never wash us away" (2010 August 23)

7:27am - 9:03am

A taste of Louisiana as we commemorate the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Dixieland, country, blues, swing, R&B, soul, funk, zydeco, name it, it comes from the Bayou State. Soundtracks represented include: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, New Orleans, Let's Do It Again, The Big Easy and The Princess And The Frog.

The first five minutes involve some overlap with the previous show where Rob and I try to remember words. Silliness ensues.
