Saturday Night & Sunday Morning


August 22nd, 2001 ~ Visit with Arkansas rockabilly hero Sleepy LaBeef, the human jukebox. Sleepy knows several thousand of songs by heart, but he still loves the Southern gospel numbers of his youth. And we'll talk with gospel singer and scholar Horace Boyer about the roots of the music.
