2 October 2006 – Mississippi Tales (part one)

This week’s show is the story of a long, long ride from Fargo, North Dakota to New Orleans, Louisiana following the Mississippi River. Kieron Yates made this journey over the summer just passed, on a fixed wheel bike with just a saddlebag for all his worldly possessions. Safely back home, he joins me in in conversation and we play music and interviews from along the way. The journey took in frozen Mormons, naked yoga, Klan-survivors, sweat and heat, roadkill, cheap motels and plenty of down home blues. Second half next Monday the 9th October.

    Wonderful trip story, and it sounds like you found some real characters at the southern end. Glad to have met you along the way, Kieron, and that some of my comments were useful in the final show.
