Labor Week - A decade has just passed: on Aug 29, 2005, one of the deadliest hurricanes in the history of the United States tore through the Greater New Orleans area. How far have the efforts of volunteer organizations gone to help New Orleans in the wake of Katrina?
Zydeco Radio is a fresh, young zydeco jam band led by Billy Mack (McDonald) on accordion and vocals and based out of Lafayette, Louisiana. Here, Billy and guitarist Bob Brahan are joined by talented pinch-hitters: Lane Mack on guitar, who happens to be Billy's brother as well as a talented songwriter in his own right; and Hunter Romero, who is the Macks’ cousin, on washboard. The group didn't miss a beat and kept the music hot in the backyard of the BTRhouse in Austin during SXSW!
