American Routes

Saturday 6-8PM

American Routes, airing Saturdays at 3 p.m. on WITH_FM,  is a weekly two-hour public radio program produced in New Orleans, presenting a broad range of American music — blues and jazz, gospel and soul, old-time country and rockabilly, Cajun and zydeco, Tejano and Latin, roots rock and pop, avant-garde and classical. Nick Spitzer, the producer and host, is a folklorist and a professor of anthropology and American studies at Tulane University. Nick specializes in American music and the cultures of the Gulf South, and received a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Texas in 1986 with his dissertation on zydeco music and Afro-French Louisiana culture and identities. American Routes explores the shared musical and cultural threads in these American styles and genres of music.
