From “Ol’ Man River” to “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” we turn to the American songbook for portraits of fatherhood, both kindly and cautionary, from down-home country to down-with-the-man rock’n‘roll and soul. We talk to New Orleans jazz patriarch Ellis Marsalis about family life and raising four career musicians—Wynton, Branford, Jason and Delfeayo. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys tells of working in the studio with his dad, Chuck Auerbach, who is making his recording debut at age 68 with Remember Me. Daughter Rosanne remembers Johnny Cash’s voice and her favorite of his tunes.

Robert Finley's musical career spans over 50 years, but he didn't release his first album until the age of 62. When Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys saw a performance, he knew he had to work with Finley, a guy he calls: "The Best Soul Singer Alive." We'll trace his path from growing up in Louisiana, to leading an army band in Europe during the 70's. Plus he'll perform live.
