We take it for granted that the majority calls the shots. But in one NY school district, that idea — majority rules — has led to an all-out war. School board disputes are pretty common, but not like this one. This involves multimillion-dollar land deals, lawyers threatening to beat up parents, felony criminal charges, and the highest levels of state government. Meanwhile, the students are caught in the middle.

One of the key styles of early rock n roll, Rockabilly combined rock and blues with country, or "hillbilly", music. Rockabilly artists tended to cultivate a wild, "bad boy" image. Some people consider Rockabilly artists to be rock's first punks. Although there have been many revivals throughout the years, we will focus on the original Rockabilly movement, which only lasted from about 1956 to 1960.

On this week's episode, we bring highlights from The Blues Foundation's 38th annual Blues Music Awards right here in Memphis, TN. Plus an interview with Barbara Newman, President and CEO of The Blues Foundation

Guilty Pleasures:  Music We Love More Than We Can Say. We take a deep dive into the memory vaults to spin the tunes that we shamelessly love. From guilty pleasures, including a disco dance number, to confessional ballads like James Carr’s “Dark End of the Street” and songs of redemption ala Bobby Hebb’s “Sunny,” we shine a light on our heart’s true delights. Plus, we explore social protest anthems including Mavis Staples' "Long Walk to D.C.," Simon & Garfunkel's "Richard Cory," and a standout R & B version of Pete Seeger's "If I Had a Hammer" sung by Shreveport's Toussaint McCall.

This week, eTown turns on the southern charm as the crew hits the road to Athens, Georgia for a very special radio broadcast from the legendary Georgia Theater with local group Cicada Rhythm plus longtime friend of the show JJ Grey.

Be sure to tune in!

This week on Our Roots are Showing - host Steve DeLap will be interviewing banjoist Jayme Stone.  

From Jayme Stone's website:  

"Two-time Juno-winning banjoist, composer and instigator Jayme Stone makes music inspired by sounds from around the world—bridging folk, jazz and chamber music. His award-winning albums both defy and honor the banjo’s long role in the world’s music, turning historical connections into compelling sounds."  

About Something Completely Different this week - host Roland Jacopetti writes:  

"I hope all of you enjoyed last Tuesday's Something Completely Different as much as I did. I was so taken with the music that I forgot to introduce you to a statement from the late Townes Van Zandt, in the notes of his posthumous album A Far Cry From Dead.  

 

As promised, I hereby announce that Tuesday's Something Completely Different show will feature FOUR different musicians (no, not three). Yes, they have definite ties, each to the other and vice versa. Explain? Mais Certainment!  

"Tell Me I’m Fat"

The way people talk about being fat is shifting. With one-third of Americans classified as overweight, and another third as obese, and almost none of us losing weight and keeping it off, maybe it’s time to rethink the way we see being fat. A show inspired by Lindy West’s book Shrill.
