Making Waves: Louisiana's Radio Story

Making Waves: Louisiana's Radio Story

Meet the voices and characters of Louisiana's radio waves-people like New Orleans Rhythm and Blues disc jockeys "Dr. Daddy-O" and "Poppa Stoppa," and country greats Frank Page and Hank Williams from the popular radio program The Louisiana Hayride. Listen and learn about WWL's big band sounds from the Roosevelt Hotel's Blue Room with Leon Kelner and His Orchestra and The Dawnbusters with radio star Margie O'Dair. From Acadiana comes the sounds of Rendezvous Acadienne from The Liberty Theater in Eunice and Revon Reed's broadcasts from Fred's Lounge in Mamou. Visit the studios of public radio's American Routes with producer and host Nick Spitzer plus many more. Making Waves: Louisiana's Radio Story combines rarely seen photographs and archival recordings with powerful videography and interviews with veteran announcers, radio program producers and listeners and lovers of that ever-lasting and growing medium we call radio.
