Nearly a year ago, we mentioned a grant for the production of a radio documentary on zydeco music in California.   It is now available for listening on the AARP web site and lasts 53 minutes.  It’s got lots of interviews with older folk, many of whom were raised in Louisiana before moving to California.  And there’s the next generation, born in California, but who have enthusiastically adopted the Creole culture around zydeco.  The slider in the audio player lets you move around if needed.  Well worth a listen!
