THE JACKSONS on the Thursday Night Feature, Thursday 9 p.m.-midnight
This Thanksgiving, after all of the turkey is gone, don't get down -- just
get funky with the Jacksons. That's right -- it's a Jackson TNF. Listen
to the music of the family that put the FUNK in dysfunctional It's all
here: Michael, the Jackson 5, Janet, Jermaine (but sadly no Latoya).
ZYDECO on Hell or High Water, Sunday 1-2 p.m.
This Sunday, we'll explore the roots of Zydeco music --- from the records
of Amede Ardoin (the first African-American musician to record "French
Music" or "La La Music," as it's also called) to later Louisiana and Texas
musicians, such as Clifton Chenier, the Carriere Brothers, and the
Lawtrell Playboys, who emphasize zydeco's rhythm & blues influence.
NORTHERN HEMISPHERE LIVE, Sunday 5-7 p.m.
This Sunday NHL will feature the monthly installment from Bill and
Todd. No guests are scheduled, just open, freewheeling conversation and
batting around of issues, complaints, and improbable stories from the news

that happens to be on your mind.
