Today on WFPK

6-8 am: American Routes
New Orleans’ Ponderosa Stomp has presented the “unsung heroes of American music” for well over a decade in blues, soul, country, rockabilly and garage rock. Stomp impresario Dr. Ike shares his memories of pioneering the raucous, eclectic gathering, and we hear from past headliners, rocker Linda Gail Lewis and Arizona Twangmaster Duane Eddy. We’re spinning tracks from Stomp artists including Gary U.S. Bonds, Lazy Lester and Doug Kershaw. In Hour 2, we’ll hear tunes from swamped areas of the Texas Gulf Coast by Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Rodney Crowell, as the region grapples with water as both a source and destroyer of life as we know it.
