Spring into Easter with the Paschall Brothers, Charlie Louvin and the Santa Maria Produce Company


March 31st, 2010 ~ Body, soul and Earth are rejuvenated at this special time of year when winter turns to spring. Spend some of it with Virginia-based gospel group the Paschall Brothers who perform an in-studio, a cappella set. Then meet Charlie Louvin, who along with brother Ira made up the Louvin Brothers, famous for their familial harmonies as much as for their hellfire and brimstone tunes. And take a ride with Shreveport, Louisiana's Santa Maria Produce Company in their trucks covered by hand-painted reproductions of da Vinci's Last Supper and other religious iconography.
