EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH WILCO

FROM THE SHOW: WILCO

From the show "Wilco" originally aired on June 14th, 2000

SMALL TOWN BLUES: JEFF TWEEDY AND JIMMY DUCK HOLMES

Wilco frontman, Jeff Tweedy tells of the impact on his songs of growing up in the blue-collar town, Belleville, Illinois. Music became his creative outlet in high school and lead to founding the seminal Americana band, Uncle Tupelo. We hear from Jeff in his Chicago studio "The Loft" about the emergence of Wilco and the place that making music has in his life, including work with Woody Guthrie's lyrics and producing records with Mavis Staples. In Bentonia, Mississippi, playing blues and running the Blue Front Cafe, has been a lifetime role for guitarist Jimmy "Duck" Holmes. Duck talks about juke joints and moonshine in the Jim Crow South til now- and how he got the name Duck. We'll also hear music of jukes, honky-tonks and nightclubs from Hank Williams and George Jones to Bessie Smith and Mary Lou Williams.

AMERICAN ROUTES STAYCATIONS, DESTINATIONS & SUMMERTIME VARIATIONS

At the peak of the summer season, American Routes is riding the airwaves to exotic destinations, swinging and surfing to all manner of beachside rhythms from the Beach Boys, Toots and the Maytals, Wilco, and the Kinks. We also stay home to bask in the sultry heat of "Summertime," composed by George Gershwin and novelist Dubose Heyward in 1934 for the opera Porgy and Bess. It's one of the most covered tunes in the American songbook with over thirty thousand renditions. We'll hear takes from Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, Duke Ellington, Sam Cooke, and the Zombies.

MAVIS STAPLES & BOB DOROUGH

Singer Mavis Staples grew up singing blues-inflected gospel with her family in Chicago, lead by her father Pops Staples' distinctive voice and guitar style. Their sound transcended the local scene, translating the message of the Civil Rights movement into song. We'll talk with Mavis about her 2010 release You Are Not Alone with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy. Then, we'll sit in while jazz songsmith Bob Dorough spins stories of the 1950s jazz world and takes us back to Schoolhouse Rock to share his thoughts on the magical properties of the number 3.

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.
