Willie Nelson / John Jackson


April 21st, 2004 ~ This week one of America's great traveling troubadors Willie Nelson pulls his tour bus into New Orleans. Willie chats and the Nelson family band plays a live set, including the old favorite, Angel Flying too Close to the Ground and the title track of his 2000 record, Milk Cow Blues. Also, we pay tribute to the late Piedmont bluesman John Jackson who played his brand of country blues from the Eastern Seaboard.
