Ways to Connect

I Can't Imagine is the 13th album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. I Can't Imagine is Shelby's first for Rounder Records. Perhaps the most beautifully crafted and intensely affecting set of songs since her landmark I Am Shelby Lynne in 2000, I Can't Imagine is powered by Lynne's lustrous vocal performance, indelible, illuminative songwriting, and the sympathetic, versatile playing of her top-flight band. Shelby's career began in 1989 when she released her debut album for the country market.

Also, Beale Street Caravan contributor Eddie Hankins checks in with us and continues his insightful series, "American Studios: Memphis' Hit Factory."

BOB DYLAN: SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT
 

The 36th album from the iconic singer/songwriter, and his first new music since 2012's worldwide hit TEMPEST.

WordTemple host Katherine Hastings leaves poetry behind for one program to air a riveting portion of a panel discussion on sit-ins attended by James Baldwin, Malxolm X and LaVerne Cummings on April 25, 1961.  After Malcolm X states his objections to sit- ins, saying there is nothing honorable about the word “sit,” Baldwin insists on redefining “manhood” and moving away from the concept of men as “warriors.”  “Football players,” he says, “are not men.”  Although some ideas and terms are outdated, much of this discussion remains relevant today.
