The excellent radio program American Routes will talk with the excellent Cajun band Bonsoir Catin the week of July 18, 2012.  The band members are Christine Balfa (guitar, daughter of Dewey Balfa of the Balfa Brothers), Kristi Guillory (accordion), Yvette Landry (bass) and Anya Burgess (violin) (all vocals).   The playlist promises the Bonsoir Catin, Balfa Brothers, Belton Richard, Warren Storm, Randy and the Rockets, Coteau, Queen Ida and more.  They are in the second hour of the program.  The first hour features Lovin’ Spoonful founder John Sebastian, an excellent songwriter.

One gripe I have about the link to the show is that it will resolve as a URL for your local public radio station that carries the show.  It’s hard to link just to the show.   Public radio is getting aggressive in its marketing these days.  I for one am not happy about their emulating the commercial entities to which I think they should be an alternative.
