Crossroads continues the June Caribbean American Heritage Month feature with more music from the Crescent City, including ‘the Soul Queen of New Orleans’ Irma Thomas, bluesman Walter ‘Wolfman’ Washington, the Soul Rebels, the Neville Brothers, and in hour two, a special feature Cyril Neville.

Crossroads also continues its month-long tributes to Chicago bluesman Eddy ‘the Chief’ Clearwater, and gospel singer and cofounder of the Blind Boys of Alabama, Clarence Fountain, who both passed away at the beginning of the month.

And there’s new music from Bettye LaVette, Sue Foley, Mike Zito, and Lurrie Bell & the Bell Dynasty.
