Ode to the Gulf Coast

Tonight I pay tribute to the folks living on and near the Gulf Coast in their battle against the oil being poured into the Gulf of Mexico, their marshes and upon their beaches.
Still struggling to recover from the damages done by Hurricane Katrina, they are now faced with the specter of a dying ocean, loss of wages and jobs due to the pollution of the the fishing and shrimping grounds of which 19% are currently closed.

I begin with a sampling of Cajun and Zydeco music and then I'll take you down to New Orleans for a sampling of New Orleans Jazz and Blues as performed by various street musicians.
