Mama Roux's New Orleans Gumbo

"Well, the only person talking about love thy brother is the preacher; And everybody's making more money than the teachers; Incarceration, immigration, isolation, immunization, instigation; What's the nation's obligation?" asks The Neville Brothers in their 2004 re-written version of "Ball of Confusion" and we'll explore those timely words on today's show.

David Bowie

Continuing with offBEAT Magazine's Best of the Beat Award Nominees, today's show will bring you selections from Album of the Year, Best Rock Album and Best R&B/Funk Album. But of course, there must be Bowie!!! Mama says good-bye to one of her all time favorites, a big influence on her youthful indiscretions and the entire music universe. I loved this guy in all of his colorful, insightful, visionary guises - David Bowie - back from whence he came. I think he knows the way!
