From The Washington Post: Dr. John, flamboyant soul of New Orleans music, dies at 77
In April of 2010, The Bob Edwards Show took a trip to The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival to collect interviews that ran that entire summer. The first program in the series ran a “teaser” of the summer interviews, then aired the first of those conversations…Dr. John, born Mac Rebennack.
This program begins with an interview of Sue Miller, author of The Lake Shore Limited, then moves firmly into New Orleans. You can read producer Chad Campbell’s contemporaneous discussion of the trip at BobEdwardsRadio.com; script/roadmap included below. Programs in the series were recorded and produced by Chad Campbell and Geoffrey Redick.
