Music Inside Out With Gwen Thompkins http://wwno.org en The Kentucky Sisters And Old-Time Tunes As Doorways To History http://wwno.org/post/kentucky-sisters-and-old-time-tunes-doorways-history Did you know that John F. Kennedy was a Republican? Neither did I. But that's what one of my college students guessed in a course on news writing. I asked another kid what period followed the Industrial Age and she said, "The Golden Age?" We moved on.<p>But whenever I'm tempted to despair about a generation that looks ever-forward, I buy a cupcake and a big mug of coffee. That's because Launa Reed works at a cafe in New Orleans that sells the best cupcakes in the history of cupcakes — you can quote me on that.
