PRI (formerly Public Radio International) produces a one-hour weekday news program called “The World.”  One of their writers attending the Festival International hopped up to Mamou for a piece on Fred’s Lounge.  It’s called “Cajun Revival in Mamou, LA.”  It’s affectionate and gives a bit of background on the Cajuns and how they got to Louisiana as well as the down-home, hell raising atmosphere of Fred’s.  (By the way, if you search “Fred’s Lounge” on Google, pay no attention to the first item that shows up.  Tante Sue doesn’t look like that!)  Esquire’s profile of Fred’s.
