EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH SUPER CHIKAN
From the show "Memorial Day" originally aired on May 24th, 2000
On this American Routes, music, songs, and artists that transcend their own cultural boundaries. Marc and Ann Savoy, a husband and wife team from Eunice, Louisiana, started playing together over 30 years ago and have helped Cajun music spread around the world. Plus legendary timbale player and bandleader Tito Puente, who brought even more of a Latin tinge to the American scene - our interview with him before he passed away in 2000. With music from Nina Simone, Wilco, Super Chikan and more.
For the first road holiday of the year, we speak with country stalwart Red Simpson. Though the only truck he'd ever driven was for Good Humor, Simpson was recruited by Capitol Records to sing about the trucking life, scoring hits like "The Highway Patrol" and "I'm a Truck." Also a visit with a former truck driver, now yodeling Mississippi bluesman Super Chikan! Steady at the wheel!
