Louisiana's "Swamp Pop" father Bobby Charles helped shape rock & roll’s evolution during the ‘50s and ‘60s, writing a string of hits for artists like Fats Domino and Bill Haley & the Comets. In 2007, folk-blues songwriter Shannon McNally began working on this tribute project with him that is now finally complete, three years after his death. Dr. John, who played piano on Charles’ 1972 self-titled album, produced it and joins McNally and other New Orleans musicians. It's our feature Thursday night.
